Levenshulme is a vibrant area of Manchester with a bustling community and an exciting neighbourhood that’s continuing to evolve.
It’s frequently described as an up and coming neighbourhood with money being invested in the area for new homes and attraction spots too.
Suburban Levy, as it’s affectionately known to locals, is filled with Edwardian and Victorian properties, as well as lots of newer homes too.
Rushford Park is a conservation area, with large three and four bedroom homes sprawling on the Avenues of Park, Sylvandale and Central.
Streets near Highfield Country Park are lined with Victorian terraces that go for much lower prices compared to the above.
Levenshulme was originally part of Lancashire, but in 1909 became part of Manchester. It was previously known as a wealthy and middle class district, but suffered from a decline. Now there’s more and more money being put into the area, and with its artsy vibe is attracting more people to buy homes here.
Whilst it may only be a small area of Manchester there’s still so much to see and do. The Levenshulme Old Library has been transformed into community centre with always something going on for the residents of the area. With baby classes, mum-to-be classes, yoga and theatre workshops. Levenshulme Inspire is another community-led organisation that is designed to promote the wellbeing of residents. Take part in workshops, enjoy parent and toddler classes or simply relax and have a bite to eat. There’s always something going on here that residents are always welcome to. Bankley Studios is a great place to take in art exhibitions and you really can’t miss The Street with No Name. The 160-year-old cobbled street has never been given an official name. You won’t miss it though, thanks to the large sign.
Cringle Brook Primary school is a standout school in the area with an Outstanding on their latest Ofsted report. St Richard’s Primary School was also given the same outcome in their latest report. Levenshulme High School was also given an Outstanding in their latest rating from Ofsted, this is an all-girls school.

Stockport Road is home to most of the shops in the Levenshulme area with the Vintage Store Manchester offering unique home pieces to fill your space with.
Whilst Levenshulme might be known for it’s Takeaway Mile along the A6, there is so much more to this suburb of Manchester. There’s an array of restaurants and cafes to try in the area. The Bluebell pub is perfect for a Sunday roast, and Trove is a must-visit for breakfast or brunch on the weekend as is Auntie Ji’s. The popularity of Cibus ensured that this pop-up pizza place expanded into a full restaurant that serves the most delicious Italian food. Fred’s Ale House is a great place to enjoy a drink of real ale, whilst also taking in some art and The Gherkin is a must-try vegetarian and vegan restaurant that will even tickle meat-loving people’s tastebuds.
Like a lot of Manchester suburbs there’s plenty of green open space to enjoy some fresh air including Crowcroft Park, Nutsford Vale Park, Cringle Park and Highfield Country Park. The must-see outdoor space has to be The Secret Lake though, with a bunch of wildlife spotting opportunities here.
