Famous for the original Harrington jacket, Coronation Street and Manchester United Football Club - Manchester has gifted the world a number of important innovations.

Manchester is a metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester, and lies within the United Kingdom's second-most populous urban area, with a population of 2.55 million. The recorded history of Manchester began with the civilian settlement associated with the Roman fort of Mamucium or Mancunium, which was established in about AD 79 on a sandstone bluff near the confluence of the rivers Medlock and Irwell. Following the Roman conquest of Britain in the 1st century, General Agricola ordered the construction of a fort named Mamucium in the year 79 to ensure that Roman interests in Deva Victrix (Chester) and Eboracum (York) were protected from the Brigantes.

Throughout the Middle Ages Manchester remained a manorial township but began to expand rapidly around the turn of the 19th century. Manchester's unplanned urbanisation was brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, and resulted in it becoming the world's first industrialised city.

The Manchester Ship Canal opened in 1894, creating the Port of Manchester and linking the city to the sea, 36 miles to the west. Like most of the UK, the Manchester area was mobilised extensively during the Second World War, and was thus the target of bombing by the Luftwaffe. By late 1940 air raids were taking place against non-military targets, the damage of which took more than 20 years to repair.

Since the early 2000s, Manchester's city centre has undergone extensive regeneration. New and renovated complexes such as The Printworks and the Corn Exchange have become popular shopping, eating and entertainment destinations, with the Manchester Arndale also becoming the UK's largest city centre shopping centre. Old mills have been converted into modern apartments, Hulme has undergone extensive regeneration programmes, and million-pound lofthouse apartments have since been developed. The 169-metre tall, 47-storey Beetham Tower, completed in 2006, is the tallest building in the UK outside London and when finished was the highest residential accommodation in Europe.

Since around the turn of the 21st century, Manchester has been regarded by sections of the international press, British public, and government ministers as being the second city of the United Kingdom. The BBC reports that redevelopment of recent years has heightened claims that Manchester is the second city of the UK. Manchester and Birmingham have traditionally competed as frontrunners for this unofficial title.

Notable for its architecture, culture, musical exports, media links, scientific and engineering output, social impact, sports clubs and transport connections - Manchester is a buzzing cultural hub that is still growing today.

A number of major music artists have arisen from Manchester, such as Oasis, The Smiths, Joy Division and its successor group New Order, Buzzcocks, The Stone Roses, The Fall, 10cc, Godley & Creme, The Verve, Elbow, Doves, The Charlatans, M People, Simply Red, Take That and The Outfield.

Manchester was credited as the main driving force behind British indie music of the 1980s led by The Smiths, later including The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, and James.

Other famous faces that hail from Manchester include Judy Finnigan, Les Dawson, Nick Grimshaw, Michelle Keegan and the legend that is Karl Pilkington.
