About the Area

Currently one of the most affluent areas of Manchester, Altrincham has undergone huge redevelopment in the last 10 years or so, while flats to rent in area are still being built. Located on the south of the city on the M56 and home to beautiful parks, tree lined roads, the super popular Altrincham Markets with varied elicious food stalls, Everyman Cinema where you can eat, dine and watch a film on a comfy chintz sofa, it’s easy to see why demand continues to soar and prices rocket here.


Properties available for rent in Altrincham get snapped up as fast as they appear. The great schools, transport links and safe neighbourhoods draw in families, with these and just about every other amenity you can imagine being close-by, also draws in the young professionals. The charming Hale village is a stone’s throw down the road while towns like Wilmslow and Liverpool is just 45 minutes away.


Chapel Street in Altrincham was dubbed the ‘bravest street in England’ after 161 men from there volunteered in the First World War
