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

I love all the shops that aren't high street chains because they're what really makes a town, I live in Bury but I love visiting Bolton just for those characteristic and one of a kind shops. In the age where chains are getting bigger and family run businesses are becoming less and less frequent it's nice to know that Bolton still has character!


I love Bolton because of the gorgeous countryside and parks.


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

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

Because they offer us access to great health apps via this amazing new portal! Which means I can find apps for me, my patients and my family to help with their conditions. Would be good to share further and wider!


Despite being new to Bolton, I have never met a bunch of people more friendly and welcoming. I love the character, sense of humour and I am proud to work in a place that is striving for a greater future for everyone.

I've lived here my entire life and adore the growing variety of things to do - be it the quickly developing town centre or the relaxing countryside, there's nowhere else I'd rather have grown up. I've no plans of leaving any time soon!

Bolton has an industrial heritage that we can all be proud of. In years gone by Bolton led the world in textiles and engineering. Despite the harsh reality of hardship and austerity at times, people always fought to try and make a better future for themselves, their families and communities. We can learn a lot from our history.

I work at Royal Bolton Hospital and I love my job very much.


It welcomed me when I came to work here, it’s a great diverse opinionated, caring community that has a fabulous identity, and really embraces outsiders as part of the big Bolton family!

We have the loveliest people who would go out of their way to help someone in need. We support each other and our community. We are a town with lots of lovely villages and you don't need to travel far to find beautiful countryside. Bolton stamped on my heart - like a stick of Blackpool rock!


It's a diverse town, full of friendly people who love a natter, a wealth of industrial heritage and beautiful buildings. A fantastic food festival, enjoyed by all who visit. Brilliant transport links. All surrounded by such beautiful countryside, right on our doorstep! What's not to Love?
