Living in Manchester

Dining outside in CastlefieldWhether you are interested in music and the performing arts, sport and leisure, or tourism and heritage, Greater Manchester has something on offer for everybody. The city region is, and always has been, a great place for living life to the full.

From the natural beauty of the Pennines and the Peak District to the buzzing urban cool of the city centre, there really is something to suit every lifestyle in Greater Manchester. World-class architecture and international attractions make Manchester one of the most visited cities in the UK and having more than 105,000 students gives the city a cosmopolitan and vibrant edge.

Manchester was named by The Economist Intelligence Unit in 2014 among the world’s 50 most liveable cities ahead of London, New York and Rome.

You get much more for your money living in Manchester, an important factor in recruiting and attracting people to work here.
