Living in Fallowfield

There are small local shops and a library on Platt Lane in the middle of the area. Some homes are just over half a mile from a large modern Sainbury's on Wilmslow Road, while others are nearer the Asda superstore in Hulme.

Wilmslow Road (less than a mile from the centre of Fallowfield) is famous for its busy restaurants, shops and cafes. Princess Road has been radically improved, with a range of small local shops.

More than 400 new homes - from large family houses to flats - are being built on the site of the former Manchester City stadium, Maine Road, to improve housing quality and choice, and attract new people to the area. There are plans for new facilities, including a modern health centre, there too.

There are regular buses along Princess Road to the city and out to the airport. The vibrant city centre, with its employment, leisure and entertainment facilities is just a few minutes journey. Buses along Wilbraham Road run to nearby Chorlton, while Withington village, with more shops and entertainment is about a mile away.
