Among the UK’s most vibrant and bustling cities, northern powerhouse Manchester is a cultural hub that’s bursting with character. And its surrounding areas are home to a unique fusion of beautiful green spaces, distinctive market towns and world-class events.

With a city centre population of more than 520,000 and 2.73 million across Greater Manchester, this is a thriving city well known for its culture and arts scene. With a jam-packed calendar of events, a fine selection of galleries and museums and a shopping experience unlike any other, Manchester has cemented its place in locals’ and visitors’ hearts.

Greater Manchester was officially formed in 1974 as the 10 boroughs previously part of Cheshire and Lancashire joined to become one – that’s Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan and cities Manchester and Salford. Manchester airport is the third busiest in the UK and there are 98 train stations dotted throughout Greater Manchester, making it a thriving hub for business. It represents more than £42 billion of the UK regional Gross Value Added (GVA). As the second-largest built-up area in Britain and with six universities spanning its miles, Greater Manchester is nurturing some of the country’s best talent.

The Towngate Business Centre is a set of industrial units to let in Walkden, Greater Manchester. The town’s proximity to Manchester helped it become a major industrial town and it has grown along with Greater Manchester as a whole. In recent times, Walkden has become a fantastic industrial location, again thanks to its position in relation to Manchester, but also Liverpool and ports on the west coast.

The units have excellent transport links and the business centre sits on the main A6 road, which in turn leads to the M61 motorway. The modern units are ideal for companies looking to expand their operations in a thriving, up-and-coming area.
