Are you from there?

I've been offered a temp job for a year in a national company based around the North, basically I can choose between working in a few cities there. I'm from Bristol though so got no idea where to live.

Go and visit, and see for yourself. Different people will have different preferences.

I've been to the three I listed but not really lived there, sadly don't know many people from there either. Liked all of them

As a born and bred Boltonian, I'm gonna have to say that Bolton is an absolute cesspool. It's only good for having easy/accessible travel connections to Manchester/Preston and other towns/cities in their direction. :rofl:

I think the fact Grimsby, the M62 and Hull were on there could've shown he wasn't serious

I think he just used Google to find every single town/city and listed it...I had to correct him in case OP believed him and moved here or something. :lol:

Knew he was joking but thanks anyway

Which places would you recommend? Toss up between Liverpool and Manc right now IMO. Maybe Newcastle but rent seems higher there

Possibly, although I can't see Newcastle or any of those

I've only been to Liverpool and Newcastle once in my life so I can't vouch for either, unfortunately.
I'd say stick with Manchester.

Well there is a rather important question: do you support Manchester United? If so you would be breaking the unwritten law of football by moving to Manchester

Can't go wrong with Manchester or Liverpool. Both have different feels, but equally awesome.

Manchester perhaps has a bit more of a vintage/indie vibe, with its northern quarter. Liverpool is a little more mainstream. Both have incredible heritage. Both have music scenes for all tastes. Manchester has the Warehouse Projects, Liverpool has some decent bar areas. Both have sports teams that are top-tier.

You mention Newcastle. Again, it's a really cool place. I'd say that Manchester and Liverpool are better connected. You can literally get to London by train in 2 hours. There is perhaps better opportunity employment wise in Manchester and Liverpool too.

As I say, you can't go wrong with either. Just visit both and pick the one you prefer.

It's a long running joke that everyone in Manchester supports City, and everyone else supports United

Thanks I thought Manchester was the more mainstream one and Liverpool a bit more "old fashioned"?

I'm temping for a year but might stay for longer; why is there possibly more employment in Manchester or Liverpool?

Visited all three a while back. It's pricey to go again though
