I adore Manchester. What a powerhouse of talent and culture has come out of that city in the past century. My friend there was telling me recently that it hit -18c one night! Luckily he has spent enough time in Canada to know how to warm up in winter!

thanks for your comments.Its not all doom and gloom like some people would think.Its got a lot of culture with the music scene,tv,football,etc and to me it has a european feel to the place.Especaily with the trams running through the city centre again.Its also been rebuilt over the last 10 years or so mixing old victorian buildings with new.I will try and post more pics.cheers

Excellent photos, thanks for sharing!

Manchester is a FANTASTIC city and I would encourage any tourist who just thinks that England is about 1) London and 2) villages to check out some of the other cities, including Manchester. It is a pretty big city and has a real "big city" vibe to it. It is great for shopping, it has excellent public transport and some very interesting architecture. While it can be seen as "gritty" (as is the case with many British cities), it's grittiness is part of the charm. Also, I have always found it to be a pretty friendly city.

You also have to look at the amazing bands that have come out of Manchester over the last few decades: Oasis, New Order, The Happy Mondays, The Smiths, Inspiral Carpets, Joy Division, to name but a few.

Last time I was there was wow....1999.

Nope. Spent most of my life in the south east / West Midlands. I like Manchester a lot though.

Indeed, Manchester has played as important role in British history and in fact, in World history.

It seems a vibrant place in every aspect, social, cultural, economic. I have to go there .

Nice. On this pics looks a bit like Łódź. Probably because both Manchester and Łódź were famous for their textil manufacture and industrialism.

Hi Mr Bricks, most of these photos are taken from outside the retail areas. The buildings you see are mostly offices.
