60% of UK companies are within a two-hour drive of this fast-growing global hub.
Manchester has been named as the best city in the UK to locate a new headquarters because of access to a knowledge pool and international transport links. Every major centre of population centre from Edinburgh to London is within a four-hour drive; and 60% of UK companies are within a two-hour drive.
It’s not surprising that Manchester is the distribution hub of choice for global FMCG giants. Manchester’s other main industries include financial and legal services, tourism, media, biotech, environmental technologies and manufacturing. The city has had a huge recent boost with the creation of MediaCityUK on Salford Quays.
Pride, heritage and modernity are good words to describe the North of England’s premier city, with its modern metropolitan focus yet it still retains its Victorian backdrop – Manchester Town Hall and the Corn Exchange notably. Some of Manchester’s latest restaurants specialise in serving locally sourced, traditional fare with an innovative edge.
