In 2017, Knutsford was awarded the best place to live in the North West beating Kendal, Lymm, Saddleworth and West Kirby on the Wirral. The accolade was given by the Sunday Times (dated 19th March 2013) which stated that the little attractive town, surrounded by country fields is about earning a living and lifestyle. It even enjoys a Curzon Cinema, antiques galore and three luxury car dealerships (including the busiest Bentley showroom in the country). The paper went on to say, a minor outcry was the opening of an Aldi in the town. However, all was forgiven when the locals found a taste for it’s very reasonably priced caviar. So much so, Aldi was had to build an extension to the store, all within a year of it opening.
