[@]Manchester a City of 'Quarters'
Manchester, the modern world’s first industrial city, has been built upon innovation, determination and the knowledge that there is world just outside its borders. Since the industrial revolution Manchester has seen an explosion in its communication, industry and its world standing.
Today this modern city is a diverse place for people wanting to live, work and play. It is divided into a series of, admittedly not very accurate, Quarters. These Quarters reflect the different elements of the city and show how it has developed over time into a major metropolis.
When visiting the city you are very likely to hear about, or be directed to any of these of these ‘Quarters’ and you can read about them in our introductions.
