With an appealing town centre full of passionate local businesses, a thriving retail district and a bustling Market Quarter, Altrincham is positively booming following a period of regeneration. However, there is so much more to this area than just its marketplace. With excellent transport links and a vibrant cultural scene, Altrincham is a hive of activity for all ages and interests.
Head out to the extensive parklands of Dunham Massey for a super family day out. Come rain or shine, Dunham offers plenty of space to run free and comes top of our list for an outdoorsy adventure. Additionally, be sure to check out Altrincham’s Inch Arts, an inclusive and welcoming creative community and award-winning arts centre in South Manchester, and the range of music lessons on offer at the Music Place and Aura Music Academy.
From cinema to live music, and theatre to vegetarian cookery classes, night owls and day-trippers will be spoilt by the amount of culture on offer in this original market town.
