Some people consider this city as the country's second city; however this position is also given to Birmingham. Manchester city centre is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites’ "tentative list". This status is a result of its network of canals and mills that promoted its growth during the 19th century Industrial Revolution.

This old historic town has been settled since Roman times, when General Julius Agricola constructed a Fort just north of the site of current city. Until the 18th century, it was a remote and inconspicuous little medieval township. After a period of time when it received its Charter, the area became a market town. During that period, Manchester experienced high growth because of the invasion of Flemish settlers who founded Manchester's new cotton industry. Perhaps, the last quarter of the 19th century, when it got its city status, was its golden age. Numerous great public buildings, including the Town Hall, built during that time. Also, Manchester’s cosmopolitan ambiance created a vibrant culture, which included the Hallé Orchestra.
