A WORLD-CLASS CITY, JUST TWO HOURS FROM CENTRAL LONDON.
A huge focus of our team is to identify property hotspots and to partner with trusted developers. That’s why we are excited to be working with Central Manchester’s number one developer, Alliance Investments. The Manchester investment story is a strong one, which is why many of our buyers are shifting their focus toward Manchester. Manchester is the UK’s biggest urban conurbation outside of London, and there are many reasons why investors are shifting their focus toward Manchester. It is well connected by air, road and rail and outside of London it has the UK’s largest airport. There are direct train links to several major cities, as well as a 2 hour express service to London. This will be boosted by the High Speed rail network (HS2) which is currently under construction. The HS2 will link Manchester and Leeds to London via Birmingham. This will shorten the journey time from Manchester to London by half.
