Manchester is a city in the north west of England and is the sixth largest city in the United Kingdom. Manchester is surrounded by the Cheshire Plain to the south and the Pennines to the north and east. Manchester grew as a city as a result of the changes resulting from the boom in the textile industry spurred on by the Industrial Revolution. The city was the world's first industrialised city. To accommodate the increasing levels of trade the Bridgewater Canal was built in 1761 to transport coal. Manchester was also the site of the world's first railway station and is also where scientists first split the atom and developed the first stored program computer.
The city is notable for its architecture, culture, music, media, scientific and engineering output, sports clubs and transport connections. Two large squares contain many of the city's public monuments. Albert Square, outside Manchester Town Hall, has monuments to Prince Albert, Bishop James Fraser, Oliver Heywood, Ewart Gladstone and John Bright. Piccadilly Gardens has monuments to Queen Victoria, Robert Peel, James Watt and the Duke of Wellington.
The city is also home to two of the English Premier League's biggest football clubs: Manchester United Football Club, the most successful club in Premier League history, and Manchester City Football Club.
Located in the county of Staffordshire, the city of Lichfield lies just to the north of Birmingham and is steeped in heritage with lots of things to do and see for the whole family. Whilst in the city why not pay a visit to the Georgian home of Erasmus Darwin, grandfather of Charles Darwin and leading doctor, botanist, inventor and poet of the 18th century. The house is located in the idyllic surroundings of Cathedral Close and contains many interactive displays and a herb garden. Any trip to Lichfield must include a visit to the 800 year old cathedral which has treasures including the 8th century St Chad Gospels, 16th century Flemish Glass, monuments by Chantrey and Epstein and the 20th century Lang Lichfield Silver Commission. Located a few miles from Lichfield is Drayton Manor Theme Park with some of the biggest, scariest and wettest rides around. Thrill seekers will love the adrenaline-inducing drop-tower, Apocalypse, stand-up coaster, Shockwave, splash-tastic log flume, Stormforce 10, gyro-swing, and Maelstrom. The park is also home to Europe's only Thomas Land™ which features 21 rides and attractions based on the popular Thomas & Friends™ TV series, including Cranky’s Drop Tower, the Troublesome Trucks Coaster and Winston’s Whistle Stop Tour.
