Why Live in Whalley Range?

LAURUS LIFE | Location Guide

Living on the Range

——

With its leafy tree-lined streets of handsome Victorian villas, impressive new builds and nearby sprawling 60-acre park, Whalley Range is a popular choice for families and couples alike.

History

  

Whalley Range has had quite the history from its heady Industrial Revolution days as one of Manchester’s first wealthy suburbs, built by ambitious local businessman Samuel Brooks, whose vision was to create ‘a desirable estate for gentleman and their families’. But shortly after the Second World War many families upped sticks and left for further afield, leaving some properties to decay.

In more recent years, however, much of Whalley Range has been declared a conservation area and Manchester City Council is actively encouraging refurbishment of what is left of its fine housing stock.

Out and About

  

Although often regarded as a quieter and leafier suburb to its trendy Chorlton neighbour, Whalley Range has much to offer. Upper Chorlton Road is home to a handful of much loved bars such as Nip and Tipple, Jam Street Café and the hit takeaway Tibetan Kitchen. But wander deeper into the labyrinth of tree-lined streets and you’ll discover a hidden gem – The Carlton Club.

Once the hangout for the gentry, it’s now a non-religious, non-political social club that hosts many popular events from the infamous Home on the Range nights to Drink and Draw art classes. Its lush family community garden provides budding gardeners an opportunity to not only get green-fingered by joining in with urban gardening initiatives, but a chance to meet like-minded friendly folk.

Travel & Transport

  

If you’re looking for a place for your family to grow up that’s on the doorstep of the bustling villages of Chorlton and Didsbury with its artisan bakeries, bars and restaurants, but is also less than two miles from the metropolitan city centre, then Whalley Range is the idyllic spot to enjoy the best of two worlds.
