Good afternoon, dear tourists!
Welcome to this fantastic bus sightseeing tour of Manchester. (слайд 1)
My name is Valeriya and I’m your guide for today. The weather is fine and I hope you will enjoy your trip.
As you can see, we’ll travel by a famous British double-decker. So you can watch and take pictures of all sights from your seats.
Manchester was founded in 1301 in the North-West of England.
We start our tour near one of the oldest buildings in our city – The City Hall – built in Neo-Gothic style. Inside you can see a portrait of the first man in space – Yuri Gagarin – placed there since 1961 (слайд 2)
At the moment we are passing by the University of Manchester, the third popular British university after Oxford and Cambridge. (слайд 2)
