The city of Sunderland lies at the mouth of the River Wear and is located in north east England. The city hosted the writer Lewis Carrol on many occasions and is where he wrote most of Jabberwocky along with the Walrus and the Carpenter. It is also thought that some parts of Sunderland and the surrounding areas inspired him when he wrote Alice in Wonderland. The Whitburn Library has a stature in memory of Lewis Carrol. Staying with the arts, the painter L.S. Lowry was also a frequent visitor to the city, where he stayed at the Seaburn Hotel. Many of his seascape and shipbuilding paintings are based on Wearside scenes.
The Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens showcase exhibitions and installations from up-and-coming and established artists alike, with the latter holding an extensive collection of L.S. Lowry. The National Glass Centre on Liberty Way also exhibits a number of glass sculptures.
Sunderland has a number of theatres including the Sunderland Empire Theatre which is the largest theatre in the north east of England. The Royalty Theatre is home to the amateur Royalty Theatre Group who put on a number of productions each year.
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.
