Location Overview

Eccles is located about four miles West of Manchester city centre, three miles from Salford and one and a half miles NorthEast from the Intu Trafford Centre.  The Metrolink makes the trip to Manchester city centre in about 15 minutes.  Buses run to the Intu Trafford Centre in about 10 minutes.  They also cover many other destinations.

Demand in Eccles still tends to be from families due to the combination of affordable housing and good schools.  That said, it’s becoming more of an “overspill” for Salford.  This means that young professionals and possible students could become more of a feature of the rental market.

Wander less than four miles west from Manchester city centre and you will find yourself in the charming town of Eccles. With its foundations in the textile industry, Eccles has grown to become part of the western gateway, with surrounding areas and transport links earmarked for development. The manufacturing industry still continues in the town, providing good levels of employment.
