5 Great Reasons to be Young in Manchester

Manchester is one of the greatest cities in the UK, on this week’s podcast you will find out why! With so much to offer, from a diverse culture to amazing food, exciting events and fabulous venues, Manchester deserves its title as the capital of the north. And it’s certainly more affordable than the actual capital!

Here are 5 great reasons why Manchester is the place to be.

A great place to be a student

With not two, not three, but four universities, and more than 100,000 students living and loving Manchester, this really is the city to be a student in. Top class education, a variety of extra curricular activities to pursue, and a buzzing atmosphere make Manchester and its universities the most sought after destinations for students.

Culture and architecture

There is so much culture to soak up in Manchester that if you blink you might miss it! Manchester Art Gallery regularly holds stunning exhibitions, and the ballet, opera and theatre scene is huge. Not forgetting the quirky cinemas and their events. From restored old gems, to modern high tech buildings, Manchester has it all when it comes to architecture. On every corner there is also a reminder of Manchester’s industrial history. The city really looks the part thanks to its buildings and it fabulously sparkles at night.

Footy

(Well, except for Leicester at the moment!) Manchester has great football. Nuff said.

The shopping

Manchester has endless choices when it comes to shopping; from high-street bargains, to designer boutiques and quirky indie shops in the Northern Quarter to nab those vintage pieces. The city is also compact enough to walk everywhere, which makes it easy to carry your bags full of lovely stuff, but if you are still looking for more then the huge Trafford Centre a few miles out of the city will certainly satisfy your inner bargain hunter.

The food

Where do we even begin with this one? Manchester really steps it up when it comes to food, and its reputation for being a foodie heaven is well known. The Curry Mile on Wilmslow Road really comes to life at night when more than 70 curry houses and shisha cafes open their doors – and often not shut them till the wee hours! A big hit with students and curry fans, the Curry Mile is a must if you ever find yourself ‘up norf’. Manchester’s Chinatown is also a great place to satisfy your taste buds, as well as the endless choices of chain and indie restaurants dotted around every corner and every street in the city. Not to mention the variety of street food markets. There is really something for everyone!
