Only 8 miles away is the nation’s second city where you’ll find a fusion of world-class culture, entertainment, sport, retail and leisure.
So whether you want to shop at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, visit Manchester Art Gallery and The Royal Exchange or watch some sport at the velodrome or some of the world’s most famous football clubs, the city’s got it all. Manchester is a forward thinking and progressive region that embraces change, whilst always holding onto the industrious values that make it so great.
Because of this, Manchester boasts a high concentration of well qualified and experienced residents, businesses and knowledge based firms, as well as three world class universities that educate over 100,000 people each year.
To the south of Manchester city centre sits the desirable commuter towns of Didsbury, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Hale, only 15 minutes’ drive.
Here, you can enjoy some of the region’s finest retail and leisure destinations, as well as a wealth of prestigious residential addresses and schools. The beauty of Cheshire's plains and the Peak District all on your doorstep ensure you get the best of the countryside, as well as the best of the city.
A crucial element of the vision for the Northern Powerhouse, Manchester will also play a key role in boosting economic growth through the improvement of the wider region's logistics and transport connectivity, as well as its links to science and innovation.
