Manchester is arguably the centre of commerce for the North of England with top law and accountancy firms having a regional base here. In recent years the city has undergone major regeneration, with stunning architecture it is a lovely city to walk around.
Liverpool which was the City of Culture in 2012 has continued to build on this accolade and offers a wealth of Museums and attractions that not only relate to its importance of a transmigration port in the 18th and 19th century but also as the most important city of music and culture outside London in terms of the musicians and stars that have been born here. School trips to Liverpool are also a must for football fans of the city’s two clubs, Liverpool and Everton.
Chester, whose routes date back to pre-Roman times is a compact city full of character and easy to explore within a day. Our tip is to take a walking tour with a Roman Centurian, a fun way for your students to bring learning to life!
