Explore a vibrant, multi-cultural city

There's a reason why Manchester is the UK's third-most visited city. Between towering skyscrapers, a Gothic town hall and over a hundred parks and gardens, it's packed with things to see and do.

Visit the Museum of Science and Industry, catch a football match at Old Trafford or the Ethiad, or take a tour of the historic Manchester Cathedral. When you feel like treating yourself, you'll find over 200 different retailers at Manchester Arndale, the UK's largest city-centre shopping mall. Or why browse a variety of hand-made textiles, ceramics and other craft goods in the city's creative Northern Quarter. To the South of the city the Trafford Centre boasts one of Europe’s most popular shopping and leisure destinations.

As you'd expect from one of Britain's largest and busiest cities, Manchester's also one of the most multi-cultural regions in the country, which means you'll be able to experience any number of different cultures, cuisines and lifestyles, all within easy reach of your Manchester retirement home.

See the sights of Manchester's countryside

Beyond the green areas of Manchester itself – including the many parks and golf clubs surrounding our new retirement homes in Prestwich - it's less than 40 miles to the staggering expanse of the Peak District National Park. With nearly 600 square miles of scenic views, diverse wildlife and adventurous walking trails, you might never run out of green hills and open sky to admire.

Get involved in an active area

Manchester's a massive, bustling city, and there's plenty to keep you entertained when you're out and about. There's classical music at the 2,500-seat Bridgewater Hall, touring musicals at the Manchester Opera House, and there are more than 50 different museums and art galleries to explore across the Greater Manchester area. It's also the home of the highest-capacity indoor venue in the UK, the Manchester Arena, where you can see some of the biggest musical and sporting events around.

Or if you'd rather keep up an active retiring lifestyle in the great outdoors, you'll find plenty of opportunities to stay in shape. There are over 60 golf clubs dotted around the region, and lots of places to practise countryside sports, such as the massive Hollingworth Lake Country Park, where you'll find fishing, bird-watching and boating.
