Any info on it?
Is it laid back or a bit pretentious/luvvieish?
It's very expensive and I doubt you'd afford to live there on a student loan... it's quite a vibrant place with several pubs and bars in its relatively small area. It has specialist clothes shops and the like, and some nice restaurants.
It's not that artsy to be honest, and a bit bland in honesty, but it's right near the Wilmslow Road bus route for an easy way into the unis and Manchester city centre.
Go live in Withington!
Well, that's where I'm gonna be next year, it's got a decent little high street, the properties are great and it's less than ten mins to walk to the Fallowfield Sainsbury's
