City Situated in north-west england. The city centre is full of diverse cultures and friendly people. Famous for its sports teams and stadiums. The football does cause trouble thow, usuall between manchester and liverpool, (visited liverpool this year, and it was lovely. And yes, i am a manc.)

However, the city (as most, largley populated citys do) does have its ghettos. Which, is most used as the steriotype of the city, see: tameside.
"Manchester's like london, but with more trees, and rain."

The capital of the North (screw you Liverpool!).

The only place I know and have access to where chavs/townies aren't in the majority.

Manchester has the best shopping malls ever!

The proud home of Canal Street.

Some of the best bands come from Manchester.

Full of sexy people.

A small sketch showing the difference in class between a young man from manchester, and his Scouse equivelent

Mancunnian: "Excuse me kind Sir, do you have a light for my cigerette?
Scouser: "is you calling me mam? Cos if you are, I is gonna deck ya in ya wanker"

SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN CLASS???
