    Hate to nitpick re your title, but Manchester is only half the size of Birmingham, and there are other big cities in the the UK besides London, Manchester and Birmingham! (Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh and Bristol to name but a few)!
    While I’m at it, with regard to to the counties that are grouped under areas of England in the tabs above, Hertfordshire is in the South East, Cheshire is in the North West and Essex is also in the South East. With regard to the North East, Northumbria is an old term for the whole of the North East, including the county of Northumberland. So in the list under NE England, it should read Northumberland instead of Northumbria. As I write this, I am aware how difficult it must be for anyone to get it right, let alone someone not native to these islands!. Please forgive me for being so pedantic, but I hope you don’t mind some friendly guidance.

    From Birmingham, it’s possible to travel out to the birth place of the industrial revolution; Iron Bridge Gorge in Shropshire, visit Much Wenlock Priory on the way. It’s 40 miles from Worcester, where King John is buried – a beautiful river city in its own right. You can also get to the Black Country Museum (Industrial heritage). An ideal base to go out to Stratford Upon Avon (Shakespeare), and within 15 mins of Cadbury World. The Birmingham Art Gallery has the finest collection of Pre-Raphaelite art in the world. And it is officially designated as the second city of England.

    Manchester is definitely worth a visit and it’s very debatable nowadays as to whether it’s Manchester or Birmingham that’s the second city. My money’s on Manchester. Birmingham isn’t twice as big as Manchester Sue, don’t exaggerate.

    According to the most recent census (2012) the population of Manchester is 502,900 whilst the population of Birmingham is 1,085,400. So in terms of population, it most definitely is.
