Advantages: Good nightlife
Disadvantages: Bad shops
Hi, I lived in Littleborough which is a little village five minutes outside Rochdale for 15 years before I moved to university and as no-one else has wrote about Rochdale I thought I would, so here goes:
Rochdale is pretty much like any town, an average size with the usual facilities- library,town hall,swimming pool,cinema,bowling alley etc. etc.
The shops to be honest are pretty below average with most of them being either a mobile phone shop or a pound shop!! There aren't loads of shops neither so I would normally hop on a train to manchester!! But there is a rileys pool hall in the centre so when I get bored I can go and beat people at pool!!!
The eateries include the usual aswell: mcdonalds, pizza hut, yates, burneys, whetherspoons, etc. but they are also sprinkled with a few trendy bar that are cool places to boost your street cred but for us students a bit on the pricey side!! But very nice food and you pay for what you get. I work for pizza hut so get 50% off there for me and my friends-which is cool.
Now for what I know best- Clubbing in rochdale. There are a few clubs in Rochdale but the best is definately nemesis- it is also the most expensive and if you are not a member can cost about£5-6 on a friday or saturday night. In my opinion thursdays are the best nights they are 70s nights and have the best atmosphere and no trouble. Other good clubs include the nile(but apparantly since I have left has been taken over by slaggy 16 year olds-a bit of a youth club now-apparantly) and liquid rock- very big with cheesey music and average priced drinks!! Stay away from Pazzazz unless u like being felt by pervy old men-if your male please go and rescue some of the nice girls from the palms of pervy old ugly men!!
And thats Rochdale folks!!!!!
