South Manchester offers the attractions of one the world’s most innovative cities combined with easy access to Cheshire, North Wales, the Peak District, and Lake District. The region benefits from outstanding public transport links, connected to Manchester Airport and the city centre by the Metrolink tram network and by train to London in just over two hours.

The communities of South Manchester have a range of attractive and high quality housing supported by excellent schools and three world-class universities. Each area has its own distinct identity, offering a lifestyle to suit everyone and a host of different shops, restaurants and leisure activities to explore within a compact area.

The Economist Intelligence Unit in 2014 named Manchester among the world’s 50 most liveable cities ahead of London, New York, and Rome. Significant public and private sector investment over the last 20 years has transformed the city into one of the UK’s most innovative and modern urban hubs. Despite this, Manchester remains proud of its central role in the industrial revolution and has fiercely protected its heritage and historic architecture.

The relocation of staff from the BBC and other leading media organisations to Media City cements the region’s status as an affordable and attractive proposition for employment and home life alike. To experience all that is on offer for yourself, why not pay a visit to South Manchester – we hope to see you soon.
