I love Bolton because of the beautiful countryside on our doorstep!


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.

Our fantastic foster carers, sitters and befrienders at Bolton Shared Care... who each give a little time! But make a massive difference by supporting and enhancing the lives of children and young people with disabilities in Bolton.

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

It is one of the biggest towns in the UK, and it is undoubtedly the best. A great industrial heritage surrounded by beautiful countryside but it's greatness lies in having the warmest and most friendly people you will find anywhere in the world. It's an ideal place to build a business given the amount of talent in the area and the travel links.

Our town has been welcoming newcomers since the 14th century and this says a lot about the overall character of the inhabitants of the place.

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

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.

I love Bolton because I can walk on the moors with my husband and my dog.

I love Bolton because it can only get better.


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!


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!


I love Bolton because it took my Grandmother in as a refugee after WW2 and continues to welcome refugees fleeing war and persecution around the world.

So much to love about Bolton. The countryside. The history. Rivington Terrace Gardens is an absolute gem. Most of all the kind, funny, friendly people. This is not my place of birth but I can't imagine living anywhere else.


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.
