Often labeled as the capitol of north England, Manchester has experienced extensive and successful redevelopment in the last 2 decades, riding on a wave of intense investment and regeneration. This has brought about the modern, creative and open-minded Manchester of today.
There is always something going on in Manchester, whether it’s a Premiership football match, famous musicians performing live, or an exhibition at one of the great museums. Explore this culturally rich environment, and playfully learn all about its history and present, by taking part in the myCityHunt Scavenger Hunt.
Manchester is known worldwide for being the first ever industrialized city. In the 19th century, textile manufacturing boomed, and Manchester was at the heart of a global network of manufacturing and trade. Following this development, Manchester expanded at an astonishing rate at the forefront of the nascent industrial Revolution taking place worldwide.
But as deindustrialization in England began after the Second World War, mostly due to manufacturing moving into cheaper countries, Manchester’s fortunes began to decline. The interactive quests and challenges of our Scavenger Hunt, at the most characteristic city sites, allow you to fully immerse in the unsteady past of Manchester, and what has become of it.
Manchester is a city of many notable firsts. Not only was it the first industrialized city in the world, a the world's first inter-city passenger railway station was also built here. At the University of Manchester, famous scientist Ernest Rutherford managed to ‘split the atom’ for the first time, thereby giving birth to a new branch of science, nuclear physics. And yet the city might hold just another first in store for you. If you manage to assemble a motivated team and keep your wits about you, you might be able to break our Scavenger Hunt’s high score, earning a spot on our website’s ranking!
