About Us

Welcome To Bowdon Shul


The first Orthodox Synagogue in South Manchester, founded in 1872, we are now situated in the leafy village of Bowdon, close to Altrincham, Hale Village and Manchester Airport.

After a long and successful history in the Chorlton-on-Medlock and Fallowfield districts of Manchester, the congregation moved in 2002 to state-of-the-art new premises in Bowdon.

We have the unique distinction of being the only Synagogue in the United Kingdom to have been opened by royalty, with an official visit by His Majesty King Charles III, formerly known as The Prince of Wales.
