It would take a lot to convince me that there is any better place to call home than Manchester, but even I’m suprised to see the city go head-to-head with Paris in a Cosmopolitan shopping feature and win.
I’d place Manchester number one at the first division of world cities, with London heading a premier league of about five that includes Paris.
Cosmo only scratches the surface of the two cities, of course. Manchester is all about big department stores like Harvey Nichols and Selfridge’s, the designer boutiques of King Street and cocktails at Malmaison.
