If you are considering moving home, and perhaps relocating from the South to the North West, then let’s try and persuade you about the many things that Manchester has to offer you in terms of quality of life. Below we explore 5 reasons why everyone wants to live in Manchester.
1. Fabulous restaurants
Manchester is such an exciting city in which to dine out. In fact, the city has the fastest growing number of restaurants and bars in the country. No matter your budget or culinary tastes, Manchester really does offer great food for everyone.
2. Vibrant nightlife
Manchester is the home of house and techno, with many of us having fond memories of the Hacienda. The good news is that the music scene continues to thrive in the city, alongside hipster bars located in the Northern Quarter and the Printworks. Deansgate is also home to many exquisite cocktail bars.
3. Close to stunning countryside
Manchester is not all about clubbing and inner-city life. The city is perfectly located to access both the Peak District and the Lake District, as well as coastal areas such as Blackpool, Lytham St Annes and Southport. The city itself has stunning scenery and parks, such as the 600-acre Heaton Park and Lyme Park.
4. An abundance of museums and galleries
There are so many museums and art galleries to visit in Manchester and the surrounding areas. The Whitworth art gallery is located on Oxford Road, as is Manchester Museum. Other attractions include the Imperial War Museum North, the Museum of Science and Industry, known affectionately as MOSI, and the People’s History Museum.
5. Shop til you drop
The Northern Quarter is home to various boutiques that stock everything vintage. The Arndale Centre has all of your high-street shops and well-known brands, plus many independent and chain cafes and coffee shops for when you need a well-earned rest. The Trafford Centre indoor shopping centre also has every shop you will ever need, and to boot, is one of the largest in Europe.
