Houses and Flats to Rent in Hulme
Just south of Manchester city centre lies the neighbourhood of Hulme, an area with a rich industrial history that’s split by the Bridgewater Canal. A community previously characterised by high-rise concrete blocks of flats and industrial smog, Hulme has benefitted from some £400 million investment over the last 20 years. It's now full of low-rise apartment buildings, sleek townhouses and, perhaps most importantly, a real sense of community. Less than a 10-minute drive from the centre of Manchester, Hulme is walking distance from the city, but also boasts plenty of bus links and transport options to and from the centre.

Living in Hulme, Manchester
Hulme has a small student population, with Manchester Metropolitan University’s Hulme Hall campus housing some 300 university students. This disused manor house was converted into student accommodation several years ago and makes for a great living space for the student population. Hulme has a real community feel and those living here will find their postboxes filled with local newsletters and their schedule packed with community events. Lots of these events revolve around St Mary’s Church, a recognisable spire on the Hulme landscape and a great place to spend a quiet afternoon.
