Moving to Manchester: which neighborhood to choose?
- The Northern Quarter: Nestled in between Piccadilly train station and the Arndale Centre, the sprawling Northern Quarter consists of a network of small streets and alleyways containing an impressive array of independent bars, cafes and boutiques.
- Ancoats: Ancoats is filled with Coffee shops, hip cafes cum Thai restaurants, artist studios and independent theatre spaces that seem to be popping up on a weekly basis, as more and more people become attuned to the area’s cheaper rents and rising status.
- Chorlton: the south of Manchester is home to a scattering of hip neighbourhoods, of which Chorlton is probably the most well-known. Home to one of the best vegan wholefood markets in the UK (Unicorn), an array of quirky bars and eateries and an abundance of liberal-minded residents, Chorlton has gained a reputation as the most bohemian area of the city.
- West Didsbury: West Didsbury’s main high street (easily linked to Chorlton via the tram) is lined with gastro pubs, cocktail bars and independent shops specialising in everything from ceramics to chocolate.
- Whalley Range: Just down the road from Chorlton, Whalley Range is where many young people who hang out in the aforementioned suburb call home thanks to more affordable rents.
- Levenshulme: Another up-and-coming neighbourhood, Levenshulme is frequently heralded as the ‘new Chorlton’. Cheaper housing prices have seen the start of a mass migration of Manchester’s hipsters, which in turn has promoted the opening of a variety of independent eateries such as popular café and bakery, Trove.
- Prestwich: Though it might not make as much noise as some areas Prestwich has always been popular with families wanting both a close-knit community and the buzz of the city centre.
- Bramhall: Boasting a fantastic array of housing and great transport links, Bramhall is perfect for the modern, busy family. Has a wide range of independent shops, including sports shops, health and beauty, bakeries, butchers and even medical care.
- Saddleworth: Made up of numerous villages and hamlets, one agent said it is like ‘going back in time by 40 years’ to when everyone knew everyone.
- Ramsbottom: Rivally Saddleworth for the title of quirkiest family hotspot, Ramsbottom is perfect for parents looking a close knit community AND still with access to the city centre.
