What to expect if you’re moving to Manchester

Now, we might be biased but to us at Kaytons, Manchester is one of the best cities in the world. Packed full of history, culture, sports and entertainment, there’s enough experiences to be had here whatever you’re after. In fact, there’s a reason that it’s one of the most sought-after destinations in the whole of the UK. So, whether you’re just here for the weekend or maybe even considering this place as a new home, here we round up everything you can expect in Manchester

A city steeped in culture and history 

Manchester’s past isn’t a secret – the city played a crucial role in the Industrial Revolution and today its legacy can be found in the beautiful architecture that lines the streets. From repurposed mills to terraced houses, Manchester combines the old and new – and boasts many impressive buildings. 

Not just that but the city has plenty of galleries, museums and theatres which date back hundreds of years. For history buffs, it’s got to be Manchester Museum and if you enjoy live performances, Manchester Opera House and the Royal Exchange Theatre won’t disappoint. 

Legendary performances 

We’ve touched on some of the best venues to see live performances but Manchester also has a fantastic sporting and music scene. Years ago, people flocked to the Hacienda club to see the likes of Oasis and The Smiths who all originated here. While the Hacienda has now been made into plush apartments, there are several music arenas which regularly host some of the biggest names in the world. 

If you’re more into football chants than the latest chart topping hit, you probably don’t need to be told that Manchester United and Manchester City Football Club hail from this area. The atmosphere at these games is always wild so if you’re new to the city, it’s definitely worth checking out. 

Delicious food

From spicy curry to British classics, street food and even gourmet dining – whatever you’re in the mood for, you won’t go hungry in Manchester. In fact, over the past few years, the city has firmly positioned itself as one of the best places to eat in the North thanks to celebrity chefs and renowned food markets choosing to call this area home. Manchester even now has its very own Michelin star restaurant. And of course, if you want a little piece of everything, Mackie Mayor in the centre is always a fun choice. 


Manchester is well-connected both to other areas in the UK and internationally thanks to a nearby airport, tram system and railway stations. This makes commuting to work very easy – whatever your role. On the topic of jobs, there’s a thriving job market here. Often described as a powerhouse, Manchester offers lots of career opportunities in media, technology, fashion, and more! There’s also a robust startup culture.
