Dids­bury is a ri­val to lure of the cap­i­tal

Sale & Altrincham Advertiser - - NEWS -

DIDS­BURY has been named one of the best places to live and work in the UK.

The south Manch­ester sub­urb joins Castle­field in the city cen­tre and Sal­ford Quays in the Sun­day Times list of the best places to live in the coun­try, along with ar­eas such as May­fair and Maryle­bone in Lon­don.

The anal­y­sis com­bines data and statis­tics such as crime rates, house prices and school per­for­mance with the opin­ions of the pa­per’s writ­ers to com­pile the list.

Judges said all three ar­eas ‘com­bined the best of city life such as qual­ity cul­ture, great cafes, restau­rants and shops, buzzing nightlife and en­ter­tain­ment, as well as ac­cess to good schools and trans­port links’.

They make up half of just six north west lo­ca­tions fea­tured in the 50 ‘Best Ur­ban Places to Live’ guide.

Dids­bury has long been famed as a de­sir­able place to live, with the south Manch­ester sub­urb boasting a plethora of pubs, bars and restau­rants as well as scenic parks.

It has also been boosted by the new Metrolink line link­ing it to the city cen­tre.

Sun­day Times home edi­tor He­len Davies said: “Much of our pop­u­la­tion lives in cities, but they are of­ten ma­ligned as loud, pol­luted and un-wel­com­ing, so The Best Places to Live 2015 cel­e­brates the thriv­ing and bustling ar­eas that of­fer the best things about ur­ban living.”
