The Historical Side of Manchester

The Wonderful Historic Gems Of Manchester.

Famed for its trendy music scene and eclectic shopping district, the city of Manchester has a unique psychedelic vibe that cannot be rivaled by any other city in the UK. Touted unofficially as the ‘Capital of the North’, Manchester is also known as an epicenter of sports in England, thanks in large part to Manchester United Football Club, the most popular football club on the face of the earth. To top it all off, the city has a varied and energetic nightlife scene that include a number of clubs and a dazzling array of drinking establishments from ultra-stylish concept bars to traditional English pubs.

Yet, for all its energy and buzz, Manchester surprisingly is a friendly and unpretentious city with a rich and interesting history. After all, this English utopia was the city responsible for giving birth to Industrial Revolution, capitalism and computers. As a historic industrial city, Manchester boasts a plethora of spellbinding museum and libraries that gives you an insight of the city’s unique role in the Industrial Age’s pioneering developments. Furthermore, the city is oozing with historical figures that date back ancient Roman times.

Also, it is the place where Engels wrote his book ‘The Condition of the Working Classes in England’, an influential piece on Communism’s development.
