Middleton Shopping Centre is on the doorstep of the town’s bus station and has a variety of shops, including many well-known high street brands, for all your everyday needs. But did you know….?
Rochdale is now home to over 60 household names and 80 independent shops but it’s also the birthplace of the modern Co-operative Movement. Visit The Rochdale Pioneers Museum and find out more…it’s FREE entry! (Rochdale Pioneers Museum, 31 Toad Ln, Rochdale OL12 0NU)
Greater Manchester has the highest number of theatre seats per head of population outside London, including Oldham Coliseum, one of the oldest theatres in Britain still operating today.
Bury’s multi-award winning market is the biggest in the North West. It is packed with independent traders and has over 370 stalls, as well as being the best place to buy the famous Bury Black Pudding.
Manchester has more than 500 licensed premises in the city centre, but there’s more to Manchester than pubs and bars with dozens of museums, galleries and music venues, plus regular events and exhibitions to enjoy.
…all just a bus ride away. See our Middleton network map to see which bus services can connect you across Greater Manchester.
