The local area guide to living in Manchester

Manchester has been one of the most important cities in the UK since the early 19th century industrial boom in the north. On the back of the expanding textile manufacture it became the very first industrialised city and was one of the first places to have a train station.

You'd be wrong to think of Manchester as an over-industrialised city, however. It has genuine historic beauty and character, with many listed Victorian buildings and magnificent architecture throughout. And natural beauty is within reach too, with the Peak District and the Pennines just outside the city to the south and east.

Since the 1990s the centre of Manchester has undergone some significant regeneration, with plenty of investment in business, venues, cultural attractions and shops. Beyond the centre, Manchester is roughly divided into distinct 'sectors'. The Northern Quarter is the creative centre, with plenty of interesting outlets and quirky boutiques.

The Gay Village, Piccadilly and Chinatown is where you'll find the best bars, clubs and restaurants and these areas are particularly well known for their festivals and events. Every year the Gay Village holds Manchester Pride, which runs for a full 10 days and draws huge crowds from all over the country and indeed the wider world. Chinatown does it's best to one-up the Gay Village by celebrating Chinese New Year in a big way with fireworks and dragons.

The area around Oxford Road is where the most popular cultural attractions are, dubbed the 'cultural corridor' by the locals. Here you'll find excellent galleries, museums and theatres as well as Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester.

Information about the local residents

There are two and a half million people within Greater Manchester, while the city of Manchester has around 400,000 residents. As of the 2011 census, two-thirds of the population are white, 17.1% Asian, 8.6% black, 4.7% mixed race and 3% of other ethnic heritage.

Manchester does have relatively high levels of people out of work, although this is no doubt heavily influenced by the significant student population. There are some excellent further education establishments within the city and, combined with the city's vibrant lifestyle, this attracts a lot of students.

Nearby schools

Manchester has some fantastic school options for families considering moving to the area, with a good selection of primary schools rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted. These include Abbott Community Primary School and St Philip's Church of England Primary School.

In terms of secondary schools, Stretford High School and Loreto College are also rated 'outstanding' and Manchester is home to one of the oldest secondary schools in the country, Manchester Grammar School, established in 1515.

As previously mentioned, further education is excellent in Manchester. The University of Manchester performs very well, and it is in fact now the largest of non-collegiate universities in the UK. Manchester is a highly attractive prospect for young people looking for university education.

Getting around

Manchester has its own airport which offers great links around the UK and Europe, and as a former industrial hub Manchester also has fantastic rail network. There are two main stations, Piccadilly and Victoria, and from these it's easy to get almost anywhere in the country.

The city's bus services are fantastic, with more than 50 operators in the area offering cheap, reliable transport. There is also a free service focusing on business districts called Metroshuttle.

The town also has, unusually, a light trail tram system - Manchester Metrolink. It was the very first in the UK and has three lines connecting nearly 40 stations. As well as this, there is a canal network still in use for leisure purposes.

Local shops

Manchester is a fantastic shopping destination. It has the largest inner city shopping centre, the Manchester Arndale, which has over 240 shops including high street fashion brands, department stores, and much more. As well as the Arndale there is the Trafford Centre, and Deansgate which is probably the fashion centre of the city. For more independent boutiques, the Triangle is a popular choice.
