How was manor life different than town and city life?

Manor Life The center of the manor was the house where the lord and his family lived. A manor was a piece of land having farm fields, and woods, a hamlet or village, farm buildings, and a house for a lord to live in with his family. Sometimes there was a second, smaller, nice house. Peasants called serfs lived and worked on the manor. The homes of the lords of the estates, and tended to be large and much more comfortable than the houses of other people. Some of the manor houses were fortified, and these could look very much like castles. Activities on the manor were from farming to woodworking to wine making. Town Life In the center of the town were the market square and a cathedral.Most medieval towns were dirty, cramped, and busy places. The streets were narrow, dirty, and usually not paved. Goldsmiths, bakers, weavers, and dryers had a town life. Most of the houses were made out of wood and easily caught on fire. In towns people with the same occupation formed groups called guilds. Guilds watched out for their members and worked to make sure everyone found employment.
