Moving to Manchester!
I’d recommend looking at the City Centre or even the New Islington area for the first 6/12 months or so.Lots of flats to rent, quick ,easy commute by tram/bike/foot and great transport links for heading out and no parking issues as you’ve no car.You sort of know what to expect living in town and once you’ve got settled in your job you can then think about moving out to suburbia or even further afield.Posted 4 years agochunkypaulMember
my office is in chorlton (since ’97) – i always have a chuckle when i hear people describing chorlton as trendy/bohemian/nice
yes it does has a couple of posh streets and good deli’s – but unless overpriced housing, students, immigrants, brothels and drive by shootings are your thing i’d stick to outside the M60…Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
Ok Manchester places I’ve lived in
Whalley range is ok as long as you are wise and pick the streets carefully, avoid the ones around Manley road and don’t go too far up into brooks bar. Chorlton is ok too, just be vigilant as the scrotes from other areas come for house break-ins ( this also happens in didsbury)
Prestwich is great as harry says, I live in Whitefield now which is next door to Prestwich and is also greatPosted 4 years agoRooleyMoorMember
Norden/Bamford areas of Rochdale are nice. Close to Bury for the shopping and easy to get to Lee/Cragg Quarries + Calderdale over the tops.
House prices are reasonable Example right on the edge of countryside
+1 for Mossley/Saddleworth although house prices in Saddleworth are expensive (Born and bred in Saddleworth, but now live ‘near Rochdale’ as houses were somewhat cheaper.
Bury is OK too.
If you aren’t driving, Ramsbottom would be an issue as the trains that run from there are of the Steam variety.Posted 4 years agototalshellSubscriber
anywhere near a tram stop station.. they run every 12 minutes go round the houses but its brand new clean and effcient.. for me i’d not go as far out as glossop but would look to be nr rochdale ( tram bus and train links to city centre one of the cheapest places to live in the country.. littleborough todmorden all good all cheap all pretty all mtbPosted 4 years ago
