Oldham Hotels

Mini guide to Oldham

     

The magnificent mills which made Oldham one of the world's leading cotton-spinning towns still dominate the urban landscape. Just Northeast of Manchester, and ideally situated on the edge of the Peak District, Oldham is now a popular centre for the arts.
Oldham is two thirds countryside and sits on the Pennine range, making a great base from which you can explore the beautiful and quaint villages of the Saddleworth area. The Saddleworth Museum at Uppermill is housed in a canalside former mill building and contains a reconstructed 18th century weavers' cottage. An event worth noting is the annual Saddleworth Whit Friday Brass Band Concert which attracts thousands of visitors.

Oldham is noted for having one of the liveliest arts and entertainment calendars in North West England and 'Gallery Oldham' houses prestigious art collections. The Coliseum Theatre is nationally recognised and many of today's stars can trace their beginnings back to 'Oldham Rep'. Grange Arts Centre is also worth a visit to see one of the best Youth Theatres in England.

You can go rock climbing in Oldham or you can go sail boarding, watch football, cricket or rugby league. You can also enjoy the Pennine countryside and the Peak Districts National Park, walk or cycle along canal towpaths, or treat yourself to an excellent curry or fish and chips. Exploring the villages of the Pennines will reveal a plethora of arts and crafts shops, tea rooms and cafes.

For those who want some city culture, Manchester is only a few minutes drive away, where the shopping and nightlife are not to be missed. You could spend a whole day at the famous Trafford Centre, where there are literally hundreds of retail outlets and a huge entertainment centre.

Oldham is very accessible lying close to the M6 Motorway (junction 21) and by train it is 4 hours from London Euston (via Manchester). It is only an hour's drive to Manchester International airport.
