Location Overview

Located about three miles North of Manchester city centre, Prestwich village is one of Manchester’s most popular commuter suburbs.  The absence of a Metrolink station is compensated for by an effective combination of trams and local buses.  By tram, the journey takes about 20 minutes.

Prestwich is popular with both families and young professionals.  The former appreciate its good schools.  Both appreciate the fact that it offers easy access to both Manchester city centre and MediaCity UK in Salford.

Less than 4 miles from the centre of Manchester, Prestwich is a leafy residential area in North Manchester with a choice of classic and modern family homes. It sits beside other popular suburban areas, including Swinton, Whitefield, and Simister.

With impressive links to motorways, the Metrolink, and Manchester airport, Prestwich is a great place to live, raise a family, and commute from.

Things to do

Things to do

One of the main things that draws couples and families to Prestwich estate agents is its thriving high street. Bury New Road runs through the centre of Prestwich, and is home to independent shops, bars, and restaurants, giving the area its own unique character. You can get your eyes tested, buy a new outfit, stock up on toiletries, and do the weekly shop all in one place.

For the kids, nearby Heaton Park has play areas, huge green spaces, and even an animal centre. Manchester’s shopping, entertainment and nightlife is just a short drive away, and easy to travel to on the bus or tram.
