Visit the ‘capital’ of the north and an important part of Britain’s industrial past. Manchester is a vibrant, multicultural city. Students visit the Manchester United stadium: one of the world’s most famous football clubs.


The city is famous for the band The Beatles, and Liverpool’s own football stadium and clubs. Tate Liverpool on the waterfront houses British and international modern and contemporary art. Students learn about the city’s history, both industrial and cultural.
