Arts, history, culture, footie, food, shopping and beautiful landscapes - all equals great retirement living at its fun-est. 

Vibrant, multi-cultural and lively, with a proud heritage from being at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, the Greater Manchester region has a large and diverse population. This means it offers a huge array of things to do and see which cater to all tastes: from celebrity chef run restaurants to Lowry exhibitions, designer shopping to cocktails at the casino, country strolls to science museums, river cruises, to perhaps its most famous export, football.

Surrounding Areas

Greater Manchester is known as the ‘gateway to the North’, because it is perfectly placed for you to explore the stunning Northern countryside and dynamic cities like Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and picturesque York.  

There are plenty of beautiful walks in Greater Manchester, for example, Hollingworth Lake, Heaton Park, Sale Water Park and Haigh Hall, but you’re also close to the UK’s favourite National Park, the Peak District, which offers stunning rambles and more extensive hikes through wild and rugged terrain. The glacial beauty of the Lake District is also within easy reach. 

On the Cheshire border, near Altrincham, you’ll find the National Trust Dunham Massey with its lovely house, gardens and deer park, it’s also close to the Trans Pennine Trail.
