With a SWISS flights from Singapore (SIN) to Manchester (MAN), you have the chance to visit one of UK's liveliest cities.
Even though Manchester is a Roman foundation, it became a town of importance during the industrial revolution of the 18th and 19th century, when it was the biggest industrial center of the world. The unique infrastructure of natural waterways and artificial canals was at the heart of this success, and you can still make a tour along the canals in narrow boats to see Manchester from this unique point of view.
Today the city is a center for banking, media and science, but some old industrial buildings have been preserved and can be visited in the Urban Heritage Park in Castlefield. In the Museum of Science and Industry, you can find additional information on Manchester's industrial roots.
For soccer fans, the city will have strong associations, whether you favor the Reds, Manchester United, or the Blues, Manchester City. Tickets for the matches are hard to come by, but tours of their respective stadiums Old Trafford or the Etihad are available. Manchester is also home to the National Football Museum, which exhibits memorabilia of the game.
For the lovers of art and culture the Manchester Art Gallery, housed in an impressive Victorian building, has one of the UK's finest art collections. Manchester is also well-known worldwide for its vibrant music scene that brought several bands and artists into the limelight and made them worldwide famous.
The Northern Quarter is the place to be for a night out and the discovery of the next music sensation in one of the many live music venues. Book flights from Singapore to Manchester with SWISS and explore this great city.
