Oldham is a large down in Great Manchester; it is known for its history in textile manufacturing as well as its rich culture. Those interested in art and entertainment can find themselves in a haven of artistic talent and history. The inspiring events and attractions are suitable for all ages, as long as one enjoys immersing oneself in culture.

Getting There

Oldham is only 7 miles away from the main city of Manchester, and roughly 5 miles from Rochdale. This makes it very close to the Manchester Airport. An easy commute is available via car and/or public transportation. Driving from the airport to Oldham takes anywhere between twenty and forty minutes depending on traffic. The busing system, on the other hand, can take around an hour and thirty minutes plus walking time.

Activities and Events

As stated before, Oldham is rich with artistic energy. There are gallery houses filled with artwork and old objects dating back to 1833 that speak about the culture and history of the town itself. The Saddleworth Museum gives even more insight into the people themselves by showcasing farmers and soldiers. To dive deep into the roots of Oldham you can visit the Castleshaw Roman Fort.

Moving away from the more serious attractions, Oldham offers a lot more events and activities for the whole family to enjoy. The Oldham Coliseum Theatre ( ) hosts a variety of exciting shows including drama performances, comedy shows, and musicals during the evenings. The Countryside Centres has fun sites for children including adventures and learning opportunities. It can be a great place to go and relax away from the world for a while.

For those looking for more action, the Stonerig Raceway ( ) is only a short distance away and features multiple tracks that promise an exciting time for groups and individuals.

The Town Centre is a great place to visit for shopaholics who want a mixture of the modern mall combined with traditional shops and markets.

Restaurants & Pubs

Many of the places you can grab a bite to eat also double as pubs and relaxing places to visit after sunset. The Clarence is a reasonably priced restaurant that offers great food. The Up Steps Inn is slightly more modern while also featuring a pub style menu.
