It's such a diverse place. Many different shops available and everybody is always smiling and with the investment into the town itself, it's massively improving and bringing people back to the great town of Bolton. The different world sports stars we have produced and the sports clubs including our beloved Bolton Wanderers FC :)


Two reasons - 1. I met some lovely people when I worked in Bolton who are still dear friends ten years after I retired. 2. The Olympus Fish and Chip Restaurant is in Bolton. Bring the two together as I often do and and a great time is guaranteed.

It is the home of the Bolton Impact Trust, this organisation is now a nationally recognised leading Alternative Provision school, that looks after some of Bolton's most disadvantaged children. The staff are some of the most dedicated people I've had the privilege to meet. They need all the help we can to continue their incredible work.

It's where my home is; where my family are; where I've got great friends and great workmates; where my church is; where my team are; where we go shopping and where we go on fabulous walks. It's where the people are so friendly and it's where my heart is! I'm always so proud to say 'I'm from Bolton!'

I love Bolton because I was born and raised here. Back when I was a child there was plenty of parks and stuff to do not so much now tho but still lots to do i.e museums and walks.

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.

Bolton has great special schools, charities and organisations that help to support our children who have additional needs and disabilities, making sure these children don't miss out on opportunities others may have.

Julie O’Brien

I was born here and attended a great school, Smithills Grammar School, where I made lifelong friends.There is beautiful countryside, easily accessible. Bolton has a magnificent Town Hall, the Central Library, The Octagon Theatre, a great Cinema, and friendly people.

I love Bolton because of the gorgeous countryside and parks.


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

Cathy Savage

We are so very lucky to have such beautiful countryside right on our doorstep with amazing views and lots of wildlife to spot. We also have some lovely country parks if you don't want to be quite so wild.

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

Bolton is Positive, Because It Cares, Because Bolton Includes Everyone and Never says No!


I love Bolton because it's a diverse, creative inspirational place to live, work and play.


I love Bolton because it gave me a home. I found love and raised a family here. Bolton people are compassionate and accepting. Bolton has taught my children kindness. Proud to be part of the Bolton family.

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