Chorlton is a left-leaning suburb a few miles south of Manchester’s city centre (and only 10-odd minutes away by tram).
A sprawling hive of artisan coffee shops, boutique clothing stores, parks, pubs, restaurants and bars, there’s an independent community spirit here, in an area well loved by young professionals and families.
And it’s loved for good reason. Chorlton has a lot going for it. It’s a tranquil spot, full of green spaces, but it’s also packed with things to do, from drinking, eating and shopping on the ever-trendy Beech Road to watching live music and performance at places like The Dulcimer and The Edge Theatre.
Here are a few of our top tips for when you next find yourself in this south Manchester gem.
