You're not kidding!  We lived in Bramhall initially, which was lovely but most folks there were older than us so we moved closer to the city.

 

So you'd rather live somewhere where you regularly get burgled and mugged at gunpoint, than live in a nice area with some (ugh) older people? 

 

:detect:

 

 

It was in part taken out of our hands as the landlady wanted to move back into the house.  The older people thing was just we didn't know anyone in the area and we weren't making friends.  When we went out it was either folk in their early 50s or else their late-teen kids.

 

We had to choose between Manchester or having no friends.

While we're dissing Manchester I'd also like to say that Brum city centre is coming on very nicely imo.

 

Some great pubs too.

 

The best thing about Birmingham is that it's not Manchester.

When I was a student we were burgled three times and I was mugged at gunpoint in broad daylight on a Saturday.  Within a year of moving back into Manchester we had our shed robbed.  Called the police and they wouldn't come out because it's so frequent they'd never do anything else.

 

When I left university I always said I'd never come back.  Money talks and bullshit walks, I guess.

 

I never lived in Manchester itself, but I worked in the city centre for 10 years before moving here, and never experienced or saw the slightest bit of trouble, anywhere.  Not like in Wigan, where King Street was just one mass of brawling, mahogany-tanned slags on a Friday and Saturday night.

Outsider view from me is..they are about the same.

 

Not as nice as Brizzle though

 

in the travel forum, top 3 places we have visited, I put Bristol in mine, I love that place. 

 

This weekend we are doing nothing, aside from removing a water tank and heater from my van. I live, I truly live.
