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 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.

I love Bolton as there are plenty of hidden gems, everyone I pass who's out walking always seems happy and shocked that Bolton has a lot of green space.

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.

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.

I have a small business on Bolton Market. The lovely community I've met here and friendliness of my customers never fails to brighten my day. I've made lifelong friends in this town

Despite its problems, which many northern towns have, due to government funding cuts, Bolton is still a nice place to live.


University of Bolton and Bolton college, supported me as a carer, by giving me confidence, and empowerment towards achieving my degree in Complementary Health studies as well as a qualification in Teaching.

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.


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

I love Bolton because it is the place of my birth. I have had many lovely conversations with complete strangers because that's the kind of friendly people you come across everywhere you go. Natural beauty is on our doorstep.
