Chorlton and Whalley Range 

Chorlton and Whalley Range, a diverse and popular leafy suburb just 4 miles from Manchester city centre, is known as the ‘liberal heartland’ of Manchester. It’s walkable streets and array of independent cafes, pubs and shops contribute to a strong sense of community and a village feel. Chorlton water park provides a slice of the great outdoors, without having to leave the city – and is just one of a number of nature reserves and wild spaces that make Chorlton one of the greenest parts of Manchester. Thanks to the Manchester Walking and Cycling Commissioner, Chris Boardman, plans are now underway to make Chorlton and Whalley Range even better for walkers and cyclists with improvements to local infrastructure and better links to the city.
