I'm moving there in June, I've only ever been once before - fill me in
The drive in to the city from the M62 is perhaps one of the worst in the country, through such deprived areas, but the rest of the city is nice. Like most places, people are generally kind and welcoming. The Penny Lane area has some nice bars and pubs to hang around in. Been ages since I've been out anywhere in the city except for the academy.
Move to smithdown road. I Lived there for 3 years. It's LOVELY.
