More than just a Football Club
As the second-largest metropolitan area in England, Manchester lies in the North West England region. Manchester has the honour of being the world's first industrialized city, as a result of the textile boom which began the industrial revolution, and the world's first railway station.
Continuing the trend of first’s, Manchester was the first city in the UK to run a modern light rail tram system called the Manchester Metrolink.
