Manchester City Centre

A great choice of properties to rent in Manchester city centre

If you are looking at flats to rent in Manchester city centre, or even apartments along the canal front, here is a brief guide to the city. 

The city centre itself has approximately 15,000 inhabitants, with an array of shopping centres from the Arndale Shopping Centre to the boutiques and high-end clothes shopping outlets in King Street. It also has a thriving cafe and bar scene, lively night life and plenty of tourist attractions. Manchester certainly has a capital city feel to it. 

The buildings are a mix of old and new, some are centuries old, such as the Town Hall and others are ultra-modern, like the new Hilton Tower. The city is divided into squares and quarters, with parks and public spaces interspersed between. There is a superb transport network in the form of trams and shuttle buses, which is great news for those seriously looking at houses to rent in Manchester city centre. 

The main area for socialising in the city centre is Deansgate, a road that runs the whole length of the city. It has a happy mixture of shops, offices, apartments, bars and cafes. The majority of accommodation in this area comes in the form of upmarket apartment blocks, such as No.1 Deansgate, Beetham Tower, City Gate, Ropeworks, Century Buildings, and The Quadrangle, as well as many other developments. Even the former night club, The Hacienda, has now been converted into luxury flats and penthouses. 

Music is a big part of what makes the city tick, having been the home of such bands as Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Smiths, New Order and Oasis. So as well as plenty of apartments to rent in Manchester city centre, there are also a vast number of music venues to be found such as the O2 Apollo Manchester and the Manchester Arena (formerly the MEN Arena).
