Effortless decorum

Known rather unaffectionately as “the Other Place” to its rival city Cambridge, there is something otherworldly to the city: the elegance and timelessness of its colleges, the measured grandeur of its spires. It’s impossible to forget that any walker of the city treads the feet of historic politicians, writers, actors, scientists and other individuals of merit. Despite its apparent formality, the young student population maintain the vigour of the city, which never ceases to surprise.

“This is Manchester. We do things differently here."

“The greatest city in the world” the local weather station says. But anyone visiting Manchester isn’t going for the weather. The city is fiercely proud of itself, and it should be.
