Investing in Bolton

Located around 12 miles to the North West of Manchester city centre, Bolton misses out on the Metrolink but has an excellent local rail service to make up for it.  Journey time to Manchester city centre is around 20 minutes.  There are also plenty of local buses and extensive road links.

The efficient transport links mean that Bolton is popular with people who work in Manchester.  There is, however, also demand from people who work in Bolton itself.  Although Bolton’s manufacturing sector has long been in decline, the service sector has been growing.  There is also a local university, hence demand from students.
