Area Guide to Manchester Property & Houses for Sale or Rent

As a city and metropolitan borough, there is Manchester property for sale & rent to suit everyone.  Having undergone considerable investment in recent years, the city now offers everything from cultural enrichment to fine dining.

From art galleries to the theatre, there is almost always something to catch the eye with the city rapidly becoming the cultural capital of the north. For those who enjoy the beautiful game, the recently opened National Football Museum is definitely worth a visit. However, if football fever doesn’t grab you on derby day, there is always the People’s History Museum, which will take you on a journey of the working classes throughout Britain’s history.

The Manchester Art Gallery, Whitworth Art Gallery and the Museum of Science and industry all add to the culturally enriching and diverse theme that is attracting so many visitors to the city.

Thanks to investment, some large parts of Manchester are becoming increasingly attractive to home buyers and as such, Manchester properties for sale in areas such as by the cathedral are becoming well sought after.

From the celebrated double Michelin star winner Michael Caines Adobe restaurant, to the stylish Australasia, which brings a taste of the Pacific to the table, there are many notable eateries through the city, far too many to mention here.
