Introducing Manchester, Liverpool & Northwest England

If you’re looking for clues as to what once made Britain great, you’ll find plenty of them in the Northwest. Dominating the region is Manchester, a paradigm of reinvention that has transformed itself from 20th-century industrial hulk into a modern city with accompanying distractions – from football to fine food. Nearby Liverpool has plenty of its own diversions including a fine collection of galleries and museums, terrific shopping and a sporting pedigree every bit as impressive as that of its neighbour across the Pennines. Within easy reach of both is Chester, a historic postcard to its Tudor past and beyond, to when it was the Roman Castra Devana. And, for a bit of respite from humankind’s concrete pawprint, some of Britain’s most beautiful – and walkable – countryside can be found in northern Lancashire and on the Isle of Man.
