Why you should buy a shared ownership property in Manchester
Manchester’s legendary music scene - that spawned The Stone Roses, Oasis and the notorious nightclub, The Hacienda - continues its national domination with flagship live music venues and fun-centric bars staging new bands and artists. Its culinary map is more complex than ever, and regular shiny new openings mean you’ll never get bored or go hungry. The arts scene is well and truly alive too – classic art galleries like the revamped Whitworth art gallery have been joined by offbeat arts venues, such as HOME, and if you mosey on over to the Northern Quarter, don’t miss the impressive street art that’ll doll up your Instagram account. Elsewhere, the Lowry theatre showcases a clutch of West-End-worthy productions, and Manchester’s big gun museums rival London’s top sights.
There’s the Manchester Museum, with its thought-provoking collections of Egyptian artefacts and a fossilised T-Rex; the National Football Museum and City and United’s grounds where you can book behind-the-scenes tours; and the Chetham’s Library – the oldest public library in the English-speaking world - is an extraordinary place to leaf through medieval manuscripts and materials.

It has a very walkable urban centre, but the transport links in place make darting from one side to the other very easy: there’s the free ‘hop on hop off bus’ that whips passengers between rail stations, shopping areas and the hubs of business, whilst a comprehensive bus, metrolink (tram) and train network ferries locals to all corners of the city. Sounds good eh? Which is exactly why many people want to put roots down here.
