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 East Riding of Yorkshire, the city of Kingston upon Hull (usually just called Hull) is to be the UK City of Culture in 2017. During that year, Hull will have undertaken a major redevelopment thanks to an £11 million funding from the government and will host many cultural events all over the city to boost tourism, jobs and the economy.
The city centre is fairly compact and mainly pedestrianised, which creates a relatively hassle-free walk around town. Bus services in Hull are operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services and Stagecoach and buses can be taken from the city's bus station, Hull Paragon Interchange. Local and national rail services can also be taken from the Interchange.
Developed from the old derelict Humber Dock in the early 1980's, Hull Marina provides space for 270 yachts and small sailing craft in its permanent and visiting berths. The area is an enjoyable stroll with some great cafes and old pubs, and hosts annual the Sea Fever Shanty Festival. Usually held on the first Saturday and Sunday in September the festival attracts major shanty singers from the United Kingdom and from around the world. The main stage is along the Prince's dock side and groups sing in the pubs near by.
