Mini guide to Altrincham

     

Altrincham is located in the county of Cheshire in the northwest of England and is a town that combines modern conveniences with rural charm. Altrincham boasts easy access to the countryside and numerous heritage sites, as well as being only a 20- minute tram ride away from the centre of the cosmopolitan city of Manchester.

Dunham Park is a 10- to 15-minute drive from the town centre and offers 250 acres of pleasant deer populated parkland. Situated within the grounds is the former home of the last Earl of Stamford. This Georgian house with Edwardian additions is now host to an interesting visitor centre featuring 30 rooms that contain outstanding collections of furniture, silverware and paintings.

The south of the town is considerably more urban as it moves away from Cheshire and into the county of Greater Manchester. The north, however, is more rural and sits on the edge of a definite green belt where farming and a country way of life are commonplace.

Shopping options in the town are plentiful with the High street offering many shops, including big names as well as smaller independent retailers. Meanwhile, restaurants are abundant, with almost every variety available including Indian, Chinese and vegetarian establishments, as well as a good selection of traditional English eateries. There are some great pubs, both modern and traditional, and a small selection of mainstream nightclubs.

For a day trip out, take the bus or tram into city centre of Manchester where historical Castlefield and its selection of museums awaits you. If you're looking for shopping, check out the city's Market Street with its vast range of retail outlets that will keep even the most hardcore of shoppers busy. The Manchester Museum on Oxford road has everything from Egyptian mummified bodies to a live snake house and is also well worth a visit.

Altrincham sits on the A56 which is accessible from both the M6 and M56 motorways. Rail services to nearby Manchester are very efficient, while Manchester International Airport is approximately 20 to 25 minutes by car.
