Virtual Experiences in Rochdale

Explore virtual experiences from some of Rochdale’s finest retailers

Rochdale Town Centre offers an outstanding combination of strong demographics and positive market factors all located in one of the most up and coming entertainment/shopping districts in the north.

With over £400m of investment going into the town centre alone to create extended retail, leisure and hospitality offerings, improved public transport links plus so much more, the centre is transforming. In recent years, a significant and lively independent business sector has emerged and thrived in the town centre. This has spawned a supportive community of people who both run these businesses and support them with their custom. As a result, businesses in Rochdale are increasingly open to new ideas, collective values and a desire to try new things.
