1. Nipper Lane
This lovely old street is filled with Victoria Terraces that look like little Yorkshire cottages – a real hidden gem.
2. Sporting heroes
If two wheels is your thing, then look no further as there are the best cycle routes including some wicked hills through Philips Park and beyond. But if you're more about team sports then Sedgely Park Rugby Club and Whitefield Golf Course are a must. There's also two great gyms right in the heart of things.
3. Tasty Treats
Top of the list is Slattery's famed for its chocolate making and sensational café, followed closely by the quirky Crowded house, the swash Porada, or newcomers 8 Manchester and One 88 Kitchen and Bar to name just a handful.
4. The route out to greenfields
Ringley Road with its stunning mansions and leafy roads heading out to Stoneclough which is veritable countryside.
5. Philips Park
With its playground and miles of walkways, woodlands and fresh air.
