The original modern city, Manchester is renowned for its outstanding commercial, cultural, creative and sporting achievements.
Manchester is the regional hub of northwest England and is the UK’s largest business and education area outside London. It is modern, thriving and has the cosmopolitan feel of a capital city. There is stunning architecture at every turn that superbly blends the modern with the traditional.
The city is well known for its famous football clubs, Manchester United and Manchester City. But there are world leading venues in other sports too such as cricket, badminton, squash and cycling.
There is much more to the city than sport though – it is the cultural centre of England’s north, with museums, libraries, business and arts facilities to rival the best in the country.
In the heart of the city centre lies Abbey College Manchester, which is within easy walking distance of all these facilities and venues. A regular free bus service also runs through the city linking the four main railway stations.
Manchester Airport is the largest outside London, with excellent communications worldwide, and the city is just a short journey from the beautiful countryside of the Peak District and the Lake District.
The college enjoys strong links with the University of Manchester, which is the largest single campus university in the UK and one of the most respected. Other universities in the city include Salford University and Manchester Metropolitan University.
