The second largest city in the UK with a population of more than half a million, Manchester is one of the booming cities of the North. With a buzzing city centre, Manchester is also surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Cheshire Plains and the Pennines. Regarded as the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester has always been at the heart of exciting advances in science, politics and culture.
Manchester is synonymous with great British music. Legendary bands such as The Smiths, Joy Division and Oasis started their journey’s in the city. Oasis became a global sensation before they split, selling more than nine million singles they became the fifth highest selling UK band of all time. As one of the forces behind the celebrated Brit Pop movement, their songs remain legendary both in and out of Manchester.
Venues such as the infamous Haçienda night club and Manchester Academy have also helped propel Manchester on to the musical map. The Haçienda’s club nights and the Academy’s stellar line ups have included the likes of Adele, Kings of Leon and Lady Gaga. Are you a music lover?

A little-known fact about Manchester is that the first ever computer was designed and built at The University of Manchester by the late Tom Kilburn and Freddie Williams. The Small Scale Experimental Machine (SSEM) - nicknamed The Baby - executed its first program On June 21st 1948, and modern day devices all owe their success to this ground-breaking invention. The first computers were so big they took up a whole room – you probably don’t have quite as many laptops as that in your house – but remember that if you need some extra space to keep things safe, our CCTV monitored units could be just the ticket.
