Commonwealth Games, Manchester is where the scientists had succeeded in
splitting an atom and had developed a stored-program computer. The city is
the commercial and cultural capital of Lancashire, and visitors are usually
left for words with its architecturally-sound Opera House and Britain's
longest and widest indoor ski slope- Chill Factor.
