Inverness is a city located in the Scottish Highlands and is the administrative centre of the Highland council area. The name means "Mouth of the River Ness" and the city lies where the River Ness, which flows from the nearby Loch Ness, enters the Moray Firth. Culloden Moor lies nearby, and was the site of the Battle of Culloden in 1746, which ended the Jacobite Rising of 1745–1746. The city centre lies on the east bank of the River Ness and is linked to the opposite bank by three road bridges: Ness Bridge, Friars Bridge and the Black (or Waterloo) Bridge. There is also a footbridge, the Greig Street Bridge, which connects to the two banks.
Inverness has good transport links. There is a direct link to the Black Isle across the Moray Firth by the Kessock Bridge and the city's railway station provides passengers with links to many towns and cities across Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom including Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Aberdeen and Thurso. Inverness also has an airport, located about 10 miles from the city, and provides scheduled flights to London, Manchester, Belfast and to many other cities across the UK.
Located in north west England, the city of Manchester lies at the heart of Greater Manchester. Unofficially referred to sometimes as "The Capital of the North", the city is known for its influence on industry and music along with its globally recognised sporting connections. It is home to the UK's second largest airport outside London and is also the England's second most visited city by overseas visitors after London.
Manchester is a very mixed city. Many races and religions have communities in the city and it has a long history of being more tolerant than most cities to people of any background. Manchester's Chinatown around George Street and Faulkner Street has been a feature of Manchester since the late 1970s. Many karaoke bars and restaurants have opened in this district providing late night entertainment for all. You will find people on the streets of Chinatown speaking Chinese to each other and most of the signs are bilingual. It is home to many of Manchester's east-asian restaurants as well as many traders in Chinese food and goods.
The Village, also known as the Gay Village, has built up around Canal Street out of the many cotton warehouses in the area. Many of the city's most famous bars and clubs are to be found here, most of which are as popular with heterosexual party-animals as they are with the gay crowd, mainly due to their very late opening hours (5am or later) and friendly carefree atmosphere.
