Where Is Manchester, England?

A major city and metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester in England, the city of Manchester is located in the northwest of the country and is fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south, the Pennines to the north. Manchester is the halfway point between Liverpool and Sheffield, both roughly 56 kilometers away.

What Is Manchester Known For?

A cacophony of joyful noise always originates from Manchester – from the raucous cheering at a football match to the catchy tunes of a high-profile musician performing in one of the city’s many expansive music venues. The energy of the place is contagious and anyone who seems to step foot into the “London of the North” seems to catch the infection. A cultural and social melting pot, one of Manchester’s very best attributes is its diversity. Imposing neo-Gothic structures sit fearlessly beside modern skyscrapers, and indie boutiques compete for attention with expansive commercial retail complexes. With always something new to discover, Manchester is far from boring.
