North-West England

The North-West of England (see map below) is a region of contrast. Cheshire has sleepy villages and lovely countryside where cows graze to produce its famous Cheshire cheese, with the beautiful and charming Roman city of Chester set in its heart. Then there's Greater Manchester and Merseyside packed with towns and cities which grew up based around heavy industry and maritime trade - and yet today there's a lighter side with Liverpool famous for its cheeky humour, spectacular cathedrals, and The Beatles, and Manchester a regenerated and modern powerhouse with a rightful claim to be capital of the North. Further on there's Lancashire with its rolling hills and coastal resorts, before finally arriving at the remote yet beautiful Cumbria, dominated by the Lake District and its stunning scenery.
North-West England includes Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire.
