City in the North-West of England, not the middle areas...that's the Home Counties and Midlands.
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.
Got some really cool concert venues (M.E.N. Arena, Manchester Apollo, Manchester Academy.)
People from Manchester are called Mancunians.
Possibly the biggest town in the North.
Often known as the New Jersey of England (by me).
Manchester is a really big city where foreigners often get lost. Public transport is both unreliable and crap.

A city in the North West of England. It is culturally diverse, has a thriving commercial side, nightlife is second to none and full of welcoming, fun people. It is hated by scousers (liverpudlians), mainly due to their narrow world view. The Manchester music scene is very much alive and happening now. The city is welcoming at all hours. This is the only city which deserves Capital of Culture status in the North West.
I had to wait for 3hrs for a connecting coach at 2am one morning in Manchester. The city was crowded, buzzing and there was a great atmosphere, if I could have I would have missed my connection and joined in the fun.

Located in the northwest of England, Manchester is extremely culturally diverse yet is less recognised for this than Liverpool. Manchester is a great place for shopping and tourism, holding a huge range of shops museums and infamous landmarks, also Manchester has two successful football teams, United and City, which is one of the main causes for rivalry with the nearby city of Liverpool.

Manchester is known for having a lower employment rate and higher crime rate than Liverpool, this could be because of the fact that there are more residents in the city or because of areas such as Moss side which are famous for being "rough" However Liverpool is famous for being the breeding ground for "scallies" and "chavs" who are well known for being generally violent.
