One of the biggest and busiest cities in the North, Manchester is a genuine beacon of culture and commerce, with a long and storied history. Manchester has always been an iconic city, with an industrial past that you can still feel in the city centre architecture, a rich musical heritage that stretches from the Bee Gees to Britpop, and a legendary football legacy.

Manchester is a true Northern powerhouse – hence the current government plan to extend the high-speed HS2 line up to Manchester, which will make the city even more vital and exciting. If you’re looking to sell your house in Manchester fast, or are looking for the best place to settle down once you sell your current home, we’re here to help.

Best areas to live in Manchester

From the suburbs to the city centre, there are lots of places you might choose to live in Manchester – but each of them has a different feel. From quirky city centre living in the Northern Quarter to family-friendly living a little further afield, there’s a huge variety of properties and places. Overall, property prices in Manchester are around £211,000 – but of course this can vary depending on where you’re looking to buy.


Regularly cited as one of the nicest places to live, Didsbury is popular with young professionals and families. There’s Didsbury village, with popular shops and restaurants, or West Didsbury’s Burton Road high street, that boasts some lovely independent bars and restaurants. With the city centre just a 20-minute tram ride away, it’s easy to understand why Didsbury is in high demand – and why the average house price here is in the region of £350,000.


Similar to Didsbury, this popular area is a little closer to the city, which makes it a big hit for young professionals and commuters. With its own high street, there’s a real community feel here and lots to get involved with. Pretty period properties and apartments make up a lot of the housing here, and you’ll be looking at an average property price of around £314,000.


Sitting in between the student suburb of Fallowfield and the upmarket Didsbury, Withington is a great option, with a buzzy atmosphere but slightly lower housing prices, at around £301,000. This makes it popular with young families and professionals. There’s a good mix of housing here, with semi-detached 1930s homes, large Victorian properties and terraced streets, so you’re likely to find something that works for your budget.

Salford Quays

For anyone working in Media City, this is the obvious place to settle. There are lots of flats here, with an average property price of £189,000 – a great investment for anyone working at the BBC, ITV, or at any of the other big businesses who call Salford Quays home. This area is obviously popular with young professionals, but it’s grown over the last few years to encompass bars and restaurants, making it a great place for work/life balance.


One of the most desirable areas in the north of the city, Prestwich has lots of open green spaces, with Heaton Park serving as a great place to get away from the city hustle and bustle. Property prices are very reasonable here, at around £237,000. After a £2million investment in the high street, you can find plenty of great independent bars and cafes, and for more culture and shopping, the city centre is only a 15-minute tram ride away.

Things to do in Manchester

Sometimes known as the capital of the North, it’s hardly a surprise that there’s plenty of things to do in Manchester. From brunch and cocktails in the Northern Quarter, to cultural highlights like the galleries and museums, Manchester has plenty to offer both locals and visitors.

Explore the Northern Quarter

In the heart of the city, the Northern Quarter is one of the best areas for bohemian bars, up-and-coming restaurants and truly unique experiences. Explore the quirky Affleck’s Palace, filled with tiny independent alternative stores, or shop for vintage clothing and records. The Northern Quarter is home to dozens of iconic independent cocktail bars and pubs, so make sure you plan to stop for a drink.

Manchester Art Gallery

The iconic listed building that houses Manchester Art Gallery is a work of art in its own right, but the gallery within holds a fantastic collection of art through the ages, including some iconic British works. It’s free to enter, and well worth checking out, with special exhibitions through the year.

Enjoy live music

Manchester has a legendary musical legacy, with The Smiths, Oasis, the Stone Roses, Simply Red, and Joy Division being just a few of the many musical acts hailing from Manchester. Today, the city still enjoys a rich music scene, hosting internationally renowned acts on world tours and supporting up-and-coming local bands. There’s no shortage of venues, from small pubs and the Academy venues, up to the Apollo and Manchester Arena.

Enjoy some shopping

In the city centre, you can enjoy a day of world-class shopping, from the indoor Arndale centre to streets of high-class shops and several department stores like Debenhams, House of Fraser and one of only four Selfridges stores. If you venture out of the city centre, you’ll find the Trafford Centre, the third largest shopping centre in the UK.

Discover Manchester’s football legacy

Manchester is world-renowned for its football, with two teams that have dominated the Premier League for years. Tour the iconic Old Trafford, or the Etihad Stadium, and discover more about the art of the game at the National Football Museum.
