Location Overview

Located eight miles to the North of Manchester city centre, Bury is, literally, the end of the line for the Metrolink.  The journey into Manchester Piccadilly takes about 25 minutes.  Bury also has an extensive local bus service - and a heritage railway.  The former makes it easy to get to other key local destinations such as Rochdale and Bolton.

Although modern Bury is still very much a market town, it’s also very much a commuter town.  It’s especially popular with families due to the combination of good schools (primary and secondary), reasonably-priced housing and effective transport.

Bury’s excellent schools and wide variety of comfortable homes make it a popular choice for families putting down roots. It’s got excellent shopping, several parks, and lots of family-friendly entertainment too.

With impressive links to the M66, public transport, and Manchester city centre, Bury is a great place to live, raise a family, and commute from.
