Experience the urban charms of Rusholme, a vibrant neighbourhood that’s on the go 24/7
Live in Rusholme and immerse yourself in Manchester’s global community famous for its busy restaurants, shops and cafés. You’ll never be bored in this hectic and bustling neighbourhood, whether you’re stopping for a snack to refuel as you wander to lectures or shopping for food supplies at the local shops.
You’ll find a more relaxed scene nearby at the gorgeous Whitworth Art Gallery, an oasis of calm surrounded by parkland and 55,000 pieces of art including works by Picasso, Renoir and Klee. Or jump on the bus for more culture at the nearby Manchester Museum, with some of the best ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK. Later, when you’re ready to meet friends, hang out at Platt Fields Park, with its large green open spaces and boating lake.
By night, the popular Oxford pub, with its quiz nights, sports nights and live music, is a must-go. When you’re hungry, your first stop has to be the famous curry mile - a bastion of over 70 Asian restaurants and cafés with a massive choice of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, and Persian cuisine. Try Al Nawaz, where the manager does magic tricks as you order, Mughli for authentic Indian street food cooked over a charcoal pit, or Punjab Tandoori, recently voted the best of the curry mile.
Less than two miles south of the city centre, public transport links in Rusholme are excellent, giving you access to the rest of the city and all of Manchester’s universities, clubs and entertainment areas in less than 15 minutes.
