Live the Oldham life

With the North West’s leading city one way and miles of rugged open landscapes the other, Oldham is a town where you can enjoy the best of both worlds. It’s a great place to buy a new home for so many reasons, which you can read more about below. Alternatively, head over to our latest offers page to discover more about how initiatives such as our Part Exchange scheme could help you move. 

 

Things to see and do in Oldham

As well as all the shops and other amenities you need, the town centre is home to cultural attractions such as Gallery Oldham, a public art gallery and museum in the Cultural Quarter. Central open spaces include the historic Alexandra Park, while moving away from the town centre opens up much larger, wilder natural beauty spots. 

From Daisy Nook Country Park to Strinesdale Reservoir, go hiking up Hartshead Pike for stunning views back across the local area. From exploring Swallows Wood and walking Dovestone Reservoir, to venturing up Lose Hill and Kinder Scout in the nearby Peak District, the surrounding area is perfect for staying active. 

 

Education

Oldham has a large number of schools to choose between, with some of the more central primaries including Northmoor Academy, Richmond Academy and Holy Cross CofE. All of these schools are rated as good by Ofsted, while Glodwick Infant and Nursery School, Bare Trees Primary and Roundthorn Primary are all outstanding. The Blue Coat CofE School is an outstanding mixed secondary, while the Radclyffe School is also in Ofsted’s top bracket. 

 

Oldham transport links

Oldham is connected to Greater Manchester’s Metrolink system, which provides quick and easy access to Manchester city centre as well as other hubs in the region. The town has three tram stops; Oldham Central, Oldham King Street and Oldham Mumps.

As well as being conveniently located for the M60 ring road, the town’s also close to junction 20 of the M62, providing a direct route to Liverpool in the west and Leeds to the east. The drive into Manchester is around 25 minutes, which is similar to the journey time on the tram.

Credited with having one of the country’s fastest-moving property markets in recent times, there’s often plenty of homes available in Oldham. You can also find some of our stylish new build homes in neighbouring Hyde.
