Welcome to Salford

Find out more about the fascinating history and exciting future of our vibrant city. Ideally located next to our neighbour, Manchester, at the heart of England's north west, Salford offers enough arts, culture, sport, shopping, heritage, relaxation and stunning scenery to fill a day or a week.

Discover Salford's fascinating heritage through many historic places of interest both on land and water. Salford's Bridgewater Canal played a pivotal part in the industrial revolution but is now a popular leisure destination.  

Head to The Quays, a stunning waterfront destination for spectacular architecture, award winning theatres, gallery and museum, outlet shopping, cruises and sport.  

And don't just take our word for what a great city it is. Local actress Maxine Peake's top 5 places in Manchester include 3 that are actually in Salford! You can also visit Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel site for ideas and reviews whilst disabled visitors should check out Euan's Guide.    

With lots of things to see and do, explore and experience, make sure you plan a visit to Salford and we look forward to welcoming you.
