Industrial revolution and a hipster’s heaven

The city of Manchester, in the North West of England, was a town of only 16,000 people in the 16th century.

The industrial revolution transformed it into a city of half a million. You can still see the brick cotton mills near the city center, but now they are mostly apartments, and Manchester is better known for its media industry than its mills. The Northern Quarter has a definite hipster buzz about it. As home to many of the city’s media and creative companies, it is not surprising that you can also find innovative and inspiring bars and eateries. If you want to eat breakfast cereals for dinner, this is the place in Manchester to do it.
