Bromley Cross

Regularly cited as one of the best places in Bolton to raise a family, schools here are exceptional, with many receiving an ‘outstanding’ from Ofsted. The average cost of a home here is £219,174, and there is a mixture of charming Victorian terraces, and modern semis and detached houses.

It’s home to Regent Park golf course, and Rumworth Lodge Reservoir, which provides picturesque walks. It also boasts several great primary and secondary schools, making Lostock another popular choice amongst families.


Comprising of two areas (Tonge Moor and Tonge Fold), average houses are much cheaper here, at £116,660 and £99,905 respectively. Whilst Tonge isn’t as affluent as Bromley Cross and Lostock, it still offers a community feel with plenty of green space – Leverhulme Park and Seven Acres Local nature reserve are both on your doorstep, and the centre of Bolton is just two miles away.


Located between Bolton and Bury, Ainsworth retains a small village feel, with a mixture of pretty stone cottages, period terrace houses, and more modern properties. Houses cost an average of £226,954, and its location to popular walking areas like Turton Tower, Jumbles Reservoir and Wayoh Reservoir make it a sought-after place for people moving to Bolton.


Popular amongst young professionals, Horwich’s bustling high street offers a range of cafes, bars and restaurants for you to explore. House prices are more affordable, with the average property selling for £196,032. Its close proximity to three train stations makes it an ideal area for commuters, with trains to Bolton taking just 8 minutes, and Manchester’s half an hour away.

Things to do in Bolton

Bolton can often be overshadowed by neighbouring Manchester, but it has lots to offer too! The cheaper house prices draw in people looking for a place to buy, but you’ll still find a whole host of shopping, dining and outdoor experiences too.

Visit Bolton Steam Museum

Located in the centre of Bolton, the steam museum boasts the largest collection of mill engines in Europe – fitting, considering that Lancashire once produced over 50% of the world’s cotton textiles. Home to many engines, including the Dee Mill Engine, Kenyon Vertical, and Diamond Rope Works, Bolton Steam Museum offers a great family day out if you’re living in the area.

Hike to the Pike

If you’re looking for beautiful views across Bolton, look no further than Rivington Pike. The summit stands at 1,191 feet, there are several different routes you can take to the top, so you don’t need to worry about crowds. With routes leading you through pretty woodlands and streams, it’s easy to forget you’re not far away from civilisation!

Dine at the Vaults

Located below the Market Place shopping centre, it offers a perfect backdrop for dining, with beautiful Victorian vaults. Home to lots of restaurants including Prezzo, Nando’s, Sake Sushi, Cadar Chimney Cakes and more, it’s a great place to go for lunch or dinner – whether you’re socialising with friends, or enjoying time with your family.

Get spooked on a ghost walk

If you want to find out about the dark side of Bolton, then try a ghost walk with Flecky Bennett. Lasting 75 minutes, you’ll get to visit haunted taverns and a bookshop, as well as finding out more about the terrifying Bolton Massacre, which claimed over 1,600 lives.

Catch a show at the Octagon Theatre

If you crave culture, then a trip to the Octagon Theatre is just what you need. Recently undergoing a £12 million redevelopment, the entire building has been completely modernised. So, whether you love a musical, play or talk, the Octagon Theatre has you covered.
