I LOVE Manchester. I'm from London, and I would say Manchester is exactly the same, but half the price, better clubs, and without all the snooty snobby parts. Nights out here are great. There are always plenty of events so it's always easy to find something for you. The Curry Mile is amazing for curries. This and That is great as well, it's so fairly priced! Loads of good vintage shops in the centre. Value for money is soo much better than what I'm used to in London.
