Everything you need to know when visiting Altrincham

Welcome to Altrincham

The Modern Market Town

On the map since well before the thirteenth century, today Altrincham is the epitome of the modern market town, boasting high quality shopping, a growing reputation for excellent food and drink, a strong leisure sector and at the centre of it all, a revitalised market as relevant to the local community now as it was in 1290 when it first received its Charter.

It’s a town with a strong cultural heart, where there is plenty to do and always something going on from live music nights to seasonal festivals, themed markets and sporting events.

Altrincham’s rich heritage makes it a rewarding town to explore, with plenty to discover away from its main streets, with leafy squares, buildings steeped in history and hidden courtyards all there to be enjoyed.

With excellent public transport links and cheap parking, getting to Altrincham is easy, and if a day is not long enough, there are some welcoming overnight options too.

So whether you're in Altrincham to shop, eat, play or work, let Altrincham Unlimited help you make the most of your visit and discover the best of our modern market town.
