Our Spotlight Location: Manchester
With this Trail Mail challenge set along the route of our brand new Wizard themed Manchester Treasure Hunt, allow us to tell you more...
Manchester was historically the cotton powerhouse of the world and once dubbed "Cottonopolis".
At one point in the 1860's Manchester was reported to account for a whopping 98% of all the finished cotton produced worldwide.
Today, the previously industrial city is now famous for its red & blue football rivalry, the birth place of many iconic music bands and its buzzing university (to name but a few).
We think Manchester is a great place to visit. So much so we've written 3 Treasure Trail adventures in and around the city.
Our Amazing (and often weird) Fact:
Across the globe you'll find 35 other 'Manchesters'.
In total, 31 Manchesters can be found in the USA. The remaining 4 are in Bolivia, Canada, Jamaica and Surinam.
*For the record I had no idea where Surinam was either!
You'll find Surinam on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America, just north of Brazil.
