From its Market Charter in 1290 to being crowned the ‘Foodie Neighbourhood’ winner at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards in October 2021, independent trade and top quality local produce are woven deep in Altrincham’s rich history.
Twice named Best Place to live in the North West by the Sunday Times, with nods to the town’s specialist shops, excellent restaurants and convenient transport links, Altrincham keeps making headlines. The modern transport interchange makes the town accessible by tram, train, bus or bike, so it couldn’t be easier to sample a taste of Altrincham.
A melting pot of culture for everyone to enjoy, there are so many reasons to visit time and time again. Get inspired with cinema, sports, music and theatre; learn a new skill with sewing, pottery and art classes; or tuck into award-winning dining with plenty of flavours to choose from.
