  • About Manchester

     

    Manchester is a metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester and a city with a population of over 500,000. It ranks within the UK's second most populated urban area, with a population of 2.5 million. Manchester is surrounded by the Pennines to the north and west, Cheshire Plain to the south and a number of towns with which creates a continuous conurbation.

    It attained city standing in 1853. In 1894 the Manchester Ship Canal was formed, creating the Port of Manchester and connecting the city to the sea. Its prosperities deteriorated after the Second World War because of de-industrialisation. However, the IRA bombing in 1996 resulted in extensive regeneration and investment.

    In 2014, Manchester was the highest ranked British city second to London and is the third most visited city in the UK. The world's first express passenger service railway station was Manchester Liverpool Road Railway Station and scientists in the city first divided the atom and created the stored-program computer.

    The name Manchester is derived from the Latin word Mamucium or its modified Mancunium and the inhabitants are still known to as Mancunians. These are generally thought to characterise from Latin of a unique old British name, either from mamm or from mamma. Both denotations are conserved in Insular Celtic languages, like mam meaning "mother" in Welsh and "breast" in Irish. The suffix chester is a survives from the Old English word ceaster.

    Stimulated by the investment after the 1996 IRA bomb, and supported by the 17th Commonwealth Games, Manchester's city centre has undertaken widespread rejuvenation. New and modernised developments like the Printworks and the Corn Exchange have become popular eating, shopping and entertainment destinations. The UK's largest city centre shopping centre is the Manchester Arndale Centre.

    Manchester is like much of the British Isles has mild summers and cool winters. Summer day temperatures are frequently over 20 Celsius, normally reaching 25 Celsius on sunny days through July and August. In recent years, temperatures can now reach over 30 Celsius occasionally. In winter, temperatures rarely fall below freezing anymore. There is consistent but normally light rainfall through the year. The city's average yearly rainfall is 806.6 millimetres compared to the UK average of 1,125.0 millimetres. Manchester however has a comparatively high humidity level and with the ample supply of soft water, was one of the reasons that created the localisation of the textile business. Snowfalls are uncommon in the city because of the urban warming effect.

    The city has one of the most wide-ranging bus systems outside London with over 50 bus firms operational in the Greater Manchester area coming from the city. In 2011, 80% of public transport trips in Greater Manchester were completed by bus, totalling 220 million passenger journeys by bus every year. Resulting deregulation in 1986, the bus system was operated by GM Buses, and because of privatisation was divided into GM Buses North and GM Buses South but was later taken over by First Greater Manchester and Stagecoach Manchester.
