Why Move to Altrincham?
Historically part of Cheshire, Altrincham was established as a market town in 1290. The town began to expand rapidly with the arrival of the Bridgewater Canal extension, followed by the arrival of the railway in 1849.
Today Altrincham is part of the county of Greater Manchester. It has a population of around 53,000 and has become a popular and affluent commuter town with some great transport links at its disposal.
The town lies just eight miles southwest of Manchester, 15 miles from Macclesfield and 10 miles east of Warrington.
Travelling further afield? The M6 is only 20 minutes allowing connections to Birmingham and London to the South, and Lancaster and the Lake District to the North.
This peaceful leafy town has various green spaces nearby such as the award-winning Samford Park, the National Trust’s Dunham Massey Park, and Tatton Park, all great for walks and other weekend activities.
Altrincham has plenty of active community groups and organisations such as Altrincham & Bowdon Civic Society, Town Centre Partnership, and Altrincham Forward All ideal for those new to the area where you can get involved with all sorts of interesting activities whilst making friends.
The town has been undergoing a number of ambitious regeneration projects.
Improvements have included a partly pedestrianised centre with attractive new paving which has allowed cafes and restaurants to cater for al fresco dining.
This is just one of the projects which has now been completed with many more on the way.
As improvements continue across the region, small start-up businesses are seeing the town’s potential and as quickly as new office and retail units are created, they are being eagerly snapped up.
Altrincham Schools & Education
Education is of utmost importance when you are on the move with children.
Not only are there schools of high quality in the town, but there are also plenty to choose from.
There are eighteen primary schools, one special school and eight secondary schools, including five grammar schools.
Of the 27 schools available only two fall beneath Ofsted’s “good” rating.
Best state secondaries in Altrincham are Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Brentwood School (an independent school). Ofsted has rated them all as “outstanding”.

However, there are some cheaper options available, particularly one and two-bedroom flats. These are priced under the £200,000 mark.
Traditionally middle-class, Altrincham has many large Victorian houses and family homes located just south of the town centre, vestiges of its connection with the railways during the Industrial Revolution and these properties make great family homes.
Neighbourhoods laying close to The Downs and Higher Downs conservation areas are very sought after with the priciest homes being in the little village of Hale.
Several new high rise apartment blocks have been erected in recent years. These are popular with young professionals as they tend to be located closer to the areas with good connections into Manchester.
