Manchester Voted Third Best City in the World

International media outlet Time Out recently revealed the top cities in the world. Manchester came in third, behind only San Francisco and Amsterdam, and is the only UK city to make the top 10.

27,000 people voted on nightlife, restaurants, cultural highlights, community, commitment to activism and general friendliness to decide on the 37 best cities in the world in 2021. Manchester came out on top for nearly all of the above - with readers commending the birthplace of Grayson’s Art Club, Factory Records and Manchester International Film Festival for packing a cultural punch. Manchester was also singled out for being the best place to get to know your neighbours and the city’s general friendliness.

It was described as a “resilient place” that thrived through the pandemic, with communities coming together at the toughest times. On a local level, the charity Forever Manchester proves how the people of Manchester come together to support each other with their fantastic grassroots fundraising to benefit community work across the whole of Greater Manchester. Also, small firms like Result CIC offered free mental health support to frontline workers, while the Eagle and Child pub gave away 4,500 meals to vulnerable locals.
