The birthplace of the Football League, Manchester is a cosmopolitan, flourishing university city that played an instrumental role in the British Industrial Revolution and is home to the first railway station in the world, Liverpool Road, which opened in 1830.
If you're a football fan, you shouldn't miss out on a visit to the National Football museum; neither should you exclude the Manchester Museum from your itinerary if you're interested in natural history and archaeology.
