Manchester is home to the world’s longest running TV soap opera – Coronation Street. . In 1888 the world’s first professional football league was set up at the Royal Hotel in Manchester. The city is home to two Premiership football teams including Manchester City and Manchester United Football Clubs. 

Adopted by Manchester in the 19th Century, the Manchester Bee symbolises the industrious nature of the city and its people. The bee can be found on many of Manchester’s street furniture and can be seen within the mosaic floor in Manchester’s Town Hall. It was in 1904 that Charles Rolls and Henry Royce first met in Manchester’s city centre Midland Hotel.
