#Manchester is a city of firsts. #Vacation here to what was the epicenter of the Industrial Revolution, the place where mankind first split the atom, and the birthplace of the modern computer.

In Castlefield, #visit the remains of a Roman fort, Bridgewater Canal, and some of the mills which once generated incredible wealth for the city.

The Town Hall was built to rival the great buildings of London. Many of the treasures sourced by merchants during the Industrial Revolution now reside in the Manchester Art Gallery and the Manchester Museum.

The People’s History Museum celebrates those who challenged Britain’s rigid political and class systems. At the world’s oldest surviving railway station, you’ll find The Museum of Science and Industry, while the Imperial War Museum North reminds us of the human cost of warfare.

Learn about the city’s footballing history at the National Football Museum, or see a match at Old Trafford.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
