The city has experienced a remarkable cultural and economic renaissance. There has been an unprecedented level of public and private sector investment that has transformed the city centre. This delivered new cultural assets, shopping venues and transport infrastructure. Rough Guide stated we were in the Top 3 cities in the World to visit.
