Sale, Greater Manchester
Sale in Greater Manchester sits on the south bank of the River Mersey between the neighbouring towns of Stretford and Altrincham. It is a town in Trafford borough, which is also home to the desirable Hale and Hale Barns villages. It has a leafy, suburban feel throughout – with its wide tree-lined streets and grand Victorian mansions converted into upmarket apartments.
In 2017 Sale was voted the 4th best place to live in the UK – largely thanks to its picturesque waterside location, community spirit and varied selection of things to see and do. The Waterside Arts Centre hosts events, exhibitions and group-led activities all year round, with an Arts Trail taking place each summer. The local area is notoriously foodie – and Sale is home to a number of trendy independent coffee shops, restaurants, delis and speciality food vendors including Cork of the North and Block and Gasket. If you fancy a locally-sourced craft beer and live music from bands at The Steamhouse pub. Family friendly food and fun can be found at Bean and Brush and dog-friendly Serendipitea.
The Square Shopping Centre If shopping’s not your thing, stroll down the canal to Altrincham Market or sip a coffee by the riverside. Nearby Sale and Chorlton Water Parks offer a green haven of peace and tranquillity combined with water sports activities.
Sale is situated close to Manchester city centre – and is accessible by car or the Metrolink tram network. It is also just half an hour from Manchester International Airport.
