Manchester, northern England’s biggest city, is a metropolitan melting-pot of history, culture, job opportunities and a comparatively low cost of living against the rest of the UK. As the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester became a hub of innovation and ideas that spread to the rest of the world- making it an urban powerhouse filled with opportunity and prosperity.
Nowadays, house prices are less than the national average, there are plenty of great schools in the surrounding areas, and fantastic transport links (including a sprawling tram system) that make it easy to get to and from the city centre and beyond. There is a fantastic music scene with the biggest acts making a stop in Manchester during world tours, a vibrant nightlife, one of the world’s most famous and successful sporting rivalries in the shape of Manchester United and Manchester City, award winning museums and art galleries, and you’re right on the doorstep of some of the country’s most stunning countryside in the Pennines and the Lake District. Lonely Planet recently voted Manchester one of the world’s best places to live, and with a burst of new build homes as well as traditional terraced and semi-detached homes in Manchester to choose from, we have to agree with them!
