Altrincham has all the character and charm of a historic market town, yet provides the variety and volume of high-quality shops, eateries, leisure and transport options you’d expect to find in a busy metropolis.
The newly restored listed Market House has attracted an array of independent restaurants, cafes, craft, clothing and homeware stores that rub shoulders with renowned national retailers and leisure chains. This unique shopping experience recently earned Altrincham the accolade of ‘Best High Street in the UK’.
The transport interchange provides bus, rail and tram connections to neighbouring towns and villages as well as Chester, Manchester and beyond. The nearby villages of Hale and Knutsford offer further options for shopping and dining.
Education is well catered for with an abundance of highly respected schools and colleges for children and young adults of all ages in the town and immediate area.
There’s plenty to keep every family member occupied, with a choice of independent and multiplex cinemas, a bowling alley and ice-skating rink. Local community events include walking tours and festivals celebrating the arts, food and drink and there are clubs for just about every kind of sport and hobby. The area has a choice of parks and beautiful countryside walks and the National Trust’s Dunham Massey is less than ten minutes away by car. It’s no wonder Altrincham was named overall ‘Best Place to Live in the UK’ by The Sunday Times.
