Manchester: Wet, busy. The entire place is known as Greater Manchester. Smaller cities are located in G.M. such as Oldham, Salford, Sale etc.
More boring than London but the drivers are better and safer, i.e. they stop.

People from Manchester are called Mancunians.
Possibly the biggest town in the North.
Often known as the New Jersey of England (by me).
More famous for Manchester United than anything else. It is a common misnoma in international circles that Manchester is in fact in London.
Often the name Manchester is used to refer to the county in which it is situated, Greater Manchester. This annoys residents of equally independent towns and cities in Greater Manchester, such as Bolton, Wigan and Oldham, who each boast a rich history also.
A resident of Manchester is known as a "Mancunian". They are typified by their strange loyalty to Manchester. Often waylaying people from other cities to tell them all about Manchester. See Terry Christian.
The North's main airport is near Manchester however. Passengers from larger, but equidistant cities, such as Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield, have bolstered the figures of Manchester Airport to make it one of Europe's largest and busiest.
