Famed for its cotton industry, Manchester contains much industrial heritage. The county of Greater Manchester is greatly urbanised with a large population and built-up areas.  This makes it a great place for enjoying historical attractions or for soaking up some culture in the numerous museums and galleries.

Places to visit

Museum of Science and Industry, The Lowry art gallery, the Imperial War Museum, Manchester Museum, The People's Museum, Manchester Art Gallery, Heaton Park, Museum of Transport.
