Situated at the heart of the region’s extensive transport network – with direct access to the M61, M60, M62 and M6 – Bolton is within easy reach of Manchester city centre and Manchester Airport, by both road and rail. In addition, Bolton’s location on the edge of the West Pennine Moors provides ease of access to beautiful countryside.
