Not long since moved out of Oldham, Some of the surrounding suburbs are ok but the centre is a waste of time I can't think of any reason for anyone to ever want to go there ahead of any other town. Sad really as 15 years ago that wasn't the case.
I'm from Rochdale but 20 to 30 years ago Oldham was a far, far better town for a night out than was my home town and I was a regular there. The number and different types of pubs in the town centre was amazing. Places like "Hark to Topper", "Old Mess House", Yates' WL", and "Miners Arms" were always great going from old fashioned boozers with blokes playing Dominoes etc through to pubs with DJs playing great music at mind-numbing volumes.
Not been to either Rochdale or Oldham centre for a night out in many a year so couldn't comment now.
I'm always surprised with how many ex-Oldhamers now live in Rochdale as to me the two towns are very similar in many ways.
