About Stoke On Trent
The Staffordshire city of Stoke-on-Trent (or just Stoke) lies to the north of Birmingham and a short distance to the west of the Peak District National Park. Stoke's main theatre is the Regent Theatre which is in Hanley, a suburb of Stoke, and is complimented by the Victoria Hall, the New Vic Theatre, the Victorian Kings Hall and the Queens Theatre.
Stoke is often referred to as The Potteries due to its association with pottery which began in the 17th century. The city has claimed the title of World Capital of Ceramics. The city has many attractions including museums, factory tours, and over 25 pottery factory shops. The nearby Trentham Estate has Italian Gardens, a shopping village, Monkey Forest and a lake which is one mile long.
The site of an old colliery and other reclaimed land is being planted as the Central Forest Park. Stoke was the site of the first National Garden Festival in 1985; the site was subsequently developed into the Festival Park, a business area where some 3,000 jobs have been created.
Lying on the West Coast Main Line, stoke has excellent rail links both locally and nationally with journey times to London of around one hour and thirty minutes.
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.
