About Manchester

Manchester is a pioneer of the industrial revolution with the city being a popular trade area. The city's architecture has several canals that were used in the trading of textiles and other products. These canals are a testament to their contribution to the economic growth of the city and the rest of the UK. As a progressive city in the 16th Century, Manchester began to grow rapidly because of the textile trade. The trading resulted in the settling of the Flemish people who set up a weaving industry in the city. Even with the English Civil War at its peak, the market town still prospered and saw an increase in population.

In the 18th Century, Manchester took the position of an industrial powerhouse because of the success of its cotton industry. The town set up a cotton mill driven by steam which was made possible because of the constant supply of power into the city. By 1912, the industry was at its peak but it all came tumbling down when the First World War broke out. By 1980, the cotton industry was non- existent due to the restructuring of the economy and so people turned to football, and the local music scene to help revive the economy. Manchester United F.C and Mancunian music became the solace for the people even when faced with a devastating bombing by the IRA.

To get it back on its feet, public sector funding and cash from the private sector to the tune of £583 million was used to transform the city into the current stylish capital. The city has a budding real estate industry that has built loft apartments and designer retail shops to attract the right kind of investors to Manchester. Currently, Manchester is seen as a creative, cultural, and digital hotspot in the UK because of the presence of large media companies such as the BBC. As the infrastructure of the city grows, so does the opportunities to build a business, invest, and even reside in for many years. Manchester has talent and an improving skills base that position it as a northern powerhouse in the UK.
