Why move to Bury?

Over recent years Bury has undergone vast regeneration. The Rock, built in 2010, is billed as one of the North West’s premier retail and leisure destinations. Hosting flagship stores Debenhams and M&S with high street favourites Primark, JD, Next, River Island and H&M also showcased in the centre, the stylish open air mall, off Goodall Street, is an excellent place to shop outside of nearby Manchester city centre. With a number of bars, restaurants and entertainment facilities, this development is definitely a draw for potential relocating families.

 

Schools

Renowned Bolton Independent School, on Chorley New Road is attended by a number of local children. This is one of the North West’s leading schools and caters for children up to 18 years. The town also boasts a very successful college and has a rich history of producing musical and artistic talent.
