Hyde grew up on the back of its historic industries: cotton, coal mining and hatting, but today this proud town has embraced modern life to the full with a vibrant mix of traditional and new industry, leisure and recreation. Hyde is one of only a few places in Britain to have its ‘very own motorway’ running through the centre of town.
Whether you live here or work here, Hyde is a great place to be with its easily accessible market, shops and supermarkets. There are plenty of leisure opportunities as well, because Hyde has an exciting Leisure Pool and lots of other sporting facilities, a town-centre park, canal-side walks, a lively ‘little theatre’, plus an excellent choice of dining experiences: ranging from traditional pub fare to quality Asian, Italian and British restaurants. And if you’re looking for somewhere special to live, you’ll find that Hyde offers locations to suit every taste and price scale.

Overlooking the town is the majestic Werneth Low Country Park, a 200-acre hill-top wonderland of fields and views, plus a network of paths for walkers, horse riders and mountain bikers.
