I love Bolton because it has great community spirit and has some amazing people who volunteer in the community.

Left Bolton in 1973 to travel the world! Now live in London, still visit "home" annually. I see great changes being made!

Ken Barker

Great sense of community. Bolton holds many hidden gems from the historic sites such as the home of Samuel Crompton in Firwood Fold to the scenic such as Smithills Hall, open farm and estate, as well as many lodges great for walks and picnics. I could go on... "I Love Bolton"


I love Bolton because it can only get better.


I live outside Bolton in Bury but it's nice to visit Bolton. My grandchildren love Moses Gate Country Park, Jumbles Country Park. But for me also I love the choice of stores at Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park for retail therapy. Bring our bikes to Rivington Pike so we can enjoy as a family.

It’s a great place to work - I have worked in Bolton for 12 years for Backup the best charity in Bolton. (I’m biased of course). I love how everyone works together and go above and beyond to ensure those who need support get the support they need #Boltonfamily

It has some beautiful buildings, despite many empty units below some of them. Its beautiful countryside and choice of walks and cycle paths is huge. It has always had a good amount of music venues, entertainment and nightlife, this has now dwindled in the last 20 years, I hope that this will be boosted again with the new plans.

We can come together when needed to help each other #communityspirit #communityspiritatitsbest

I love Bolton because you are no more than a 10 minute drive from a lodge, river, hills, parks or shops. Take your pick where to go today to see the sights, historical or modern.

Rachel Chamberlain

I love Bolton because it's the friendliest place in the country and we have the amazing market place :)

Cathy Savage

I love Bolton because it is friendly and lots to see and do like Queen's Park.

Connor Freeman

I love Bolton because... Smithills Hall, the open market selling fresh produce, Rivington and the surrounding countryside. What's not to love.
