The world`s first industrialized city, Manchester is now England`s second city with a cultural life to rival that of London. The city boasts some of the most interesting galleries and museums in the UK, such as the Museum of Science and Industry, the Whitworth for modern art, the City Art Gallery, the Lowry and the Imperial War Museum North. Manchester is well known for the Manchester City and Manchester United football teams. The Castlefield conservation area`s 18th-century canal system recalls the city`s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. The revitalized Salford Quays dockyards now house the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North and the Lowry cultural centre.
