Salford Tourism facts and figures

Partners work together across the city to raise the profile of Salford and the rich tourism product on offer. Visit Salford works with key organisations across the city to promote venues, events and destinations to visitors. But what is the value of the industry for Salford?

The STEAM (Scarborough Tourism Economic Activity Monitor) model is the recognised method for monitoring the impact and trends of tourism across the UK. Salford collects this data to ensure ongoing evaluation and benchmarking against previous years and other cities.

The latest STEAM figures for Salford show tourism at a record high. Last year saw a 7.6% increase in visitor spend in Salford, taking it to £585 million per year with visitor figures reaching 7.4 million - an increase of 4.6% on 2013. The opening of RHS Garden Bridgewater in 2019 will further boost Salford's booming tourism industry.
