Yes a bit, also industrial harbour cities with lots of redevelopment and new buildings. But Manchester is typical British, so partly reminds a bit of London as well.

JOHN RYLANDS LIBRARY:

John Ryland Library is a historical library, housed in a dark and beautiful Victorian neo-gothic stone building. It is situated on Deansgate, a major street in the heart of Manchester, and is open to public. The building, designed by Basil Champneys, was completed in 1899, and the library opened in 1900. It was founded by Enriqueta Augustina Rylands in memory of her husband, John Rylands. The interior is very dark with many wooden panels. It is said to have inspired the Hogwarts school in Harry Potter. You can find a copy of the Gutenberg bible, the first edition of Ulysees by James Joyce and Papyrus P52, the earliest extant of the New Testament text. In the basement you find historical toilets, and the building feature several stained glass windows, as well as a modern annex that is incorporated into the old building. Realistic portraits, creatures and mythical symbols are carved in the building's Yorkshire and Cumbrian stone material. The Rylands Gallery features 1.4 million items. The Crawford and Spencer rooms consist of rare books and items, bought from these families by Enriqueta Rylands.

THE PRINTWORKS:
- Hard Rock Café, Exchange Square

The Printworks is a former industrial building complex that was turned into a really nice entertainment and restaurants complex, with neon lights and high dark passages that make it looks like night, even daytime. It is situated at Exchange Square, next to Corporation St. Here you find UK:s second largest Hard Rock Café. In this 2-storey branch you find clothes, guitars and other equipment used by Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Kiss, Slayer, Anthrax and more. You also find the largest ODEON cinema in the UK, theatres, night blubs, restaurants and cafés.

The transformation of this derilict Printworks building was part of the redevelopment of Manchester after the 1996 IRA bombing. It was the largest newspaper printing house from 1929 to 1986.
