Why Choose Bolton?

Why choose Bolton and the North West?

Many people are unaware that the North West town of Bolton is the largest in the country.

With a variety of attractive sub-districts and a diverse social, cultural and economic population Bolton has something for everybody.

We are fortunate to benefit from a large town centre with a wealth of historic buildings and with the advent of the Bolton Framework covering £1billion worth of projected investment funding, the future of the town is starting to look rosy. Demolition works within the regeneration zones have commenced with exciting projects underway.

Bolton is also a university town with a growing student population, a thriving motorsport centre and lucrative overseas investment making it ideal for landlords looking to offer student homes.

Despite struggling high streets across the country Bolton has a strong community heart and a strong entrepreneurial spirit giving hope for new local businesses to support the town.

Town centre living over the next few years is aiming to offer a metropolitan environment with a variety of new build housing and apartments supported by a new lifestyle of restaurants, bars and cultural destinations including The Octagon Theatre and the historic library and museum building situated in Le Mans Crescent.

Le Mans Crescent and the Town Hall Square have also recently featured in several television dramas giving the town a media boost with further projected filming in the pipeline.
