Manchester has been voted as the third best city in the world!

Tourism website TimeOut polled a huge 27,000 city-dwellers from across the globe on what they thought is the greatest city.

The survey was conducted to recognise cities’ achievements in the wake of total shutdowns due to Covid-19 and to celebrate how far they’ve come. Beyond just reigniting their attractions, food and culture, cities came together to work on community projects and face environmental challenges.

Manchester falls behind only San Francisco in first place and Amsterdam in second, beating Tokyo, New York and many more.

So what makes Manchester so great?

TimeOut describes Manchester as a resilient place, with communities banding together through tough times. Organisations and businesses across the city donated services, from offering free mental health support to offering thousands of meals to vulnerable locals.

In 2021, Manchester came out of a series of lockdown to revive its famous cultural scene, with arts festivals, exhibitions and live music.

The Manchester area is home to over half a million people. It is a multicultural city with residents hailing from all around the world who live, work and study with the locals.

Attractions come in every shape and form, from the National Football Museum, the AO Arena, the Trafford Centre and many more, as well as a vast city centre shopping district, historical walking tours, thriving nightlife and endless cafes and restaurants. Manchester is also home to two world-class football teams, Manchester United and Manchester City.
