Things to do: nightlife, museums, sightseeing
Greater Manchester is a mix of high-density urban areas, modern suburbs, and quaint rural locations. In the 19th century, this region flourished as a global center of the cotton industry. Today it remains one of the country’s largest and most vibrant commercial areas, providing you with a multitude of vacation ideas. The region’s biggest and most significant urban center is Manchester, considered the social, economic, and cultural capital of this part of England. Noisy, vibrant, and truly multicultural, Greater Manchester is well connected to all other parts of the country by a first-class network of roads and one of the finest light-rail systems in the country, carrying nearly 20 million passengers each year and making it great place to base your holiday in this region. The area once had a negative reputation from its industrial past, but it's now a thriving urban region, known for its diversity and acceptance of all cultures--a pleasant attribute that makes up what it may lack in tourist attractions.
