Where's the roughest places in Manchester?Watch
Otherwise I'd say Moss Side and Gorton. Bits of Salford.
Nowhere's absolutely awful though, imho.
But on the whole, Manchester is a good city. I've never personally had any trouble here; people around the city centre are generally quite friendly, whether in the daytime shopping or on nights out in bars/clubs. Just avoid the areas I mentioned and you'll have a great time here.
i have family in moss side and they say it has changed a lot since the early 1990's, moss side isn't so bad anymore! there are other pretty rough places in Manchester but I'm not familiar with them, but the 6 i have mentioned are really rough, shady people in Ardwick and Moston definitely have guns and they don't trust people they don't recognize! avoid them at all costs.
I'd say Salford's becoming safer and safer. May be a good place to invest in as the area improves (BBC MediaCity moving there etc.) especially the closer to the Quays you get.
I love it anyway. I'll be sad to leave Manch in September. I've never felt unsafe in city centre ever.
Good luck with the job offer!
Eccles seems ok
There are definitely some nasty areas in Salford, but I'm not as familiar with the area.
Dont go to... Ardwick, Longsight, Cheetham Hill, Wythenshawe, Hulme.

The 3 things that you should ask yourself are;
1- Your lifestyle. Will you be arriving home late, and how? Walking? Car? Taxi? Other such things.
2- Who will your friendbase consist of, street rats or educated skunks?
3- How much are you willing to spend, will ultimatly depend on your security in any area.
I am thinking of a job offer in Manchester and maybe live there if the job works out for me, i have heard parts can be rough as hell so i would like to know the roughest and worst parts to avoid. thanks
