Once known as „Cottonopolis“ Manchester made a big transition from an industrial city to a modern hub for creative minds and startups. I met up with Fraser, a true mancunian, who showed me some of the spots where you can still see the remains of the industrial period and how they are being used today.

One of the hippest areas in town is the Northern Quarter where Sue showed me the many murals, street art, cafes, co-working spaces and art galleries. Another one is the up & coming neighborhood of Ancoats which is located right next to the Northern Quarter.
