Discover Salford - Cultural City

Visit Salford | Explore the region

Salford and beyond

Crazy as it may seem, given all that Salford has to offer, you may just wish to explore some more of the region while you're here. Salford's position at the heart of England's Northwest means you're never more than a couple of hours away from some of the UK's most exciting cities and most breathtaking scenery.


Manchester skyline Visit Salford's original modern sister city - a short tram journey, or even a 5 minute stroll if you're on Chapel Street, will take you into the heart of Britain's most electrifying city with more restaurants, bars, art galleries, cinemas, theatres, museums, pubs and festivals than you can shake a stick at.



Liverpool skyline 2008 is the perfect year to explore Liverpool as it celebrates its year of being European Capital of Culture. As well as the usual sights and sounds of this maritime masterpiece, 2008 will see the streets, shops, galleries and waterfront come to life with a range of one-off performances, art works and concerts.


Cumbria If the hustle and bustle of all this city life is wearing you down, take a break in the Northwest's very own adventure playground. Stroll around traditional market towns, stride over spectacular hills and mountains, take a boat trip across the serene lakes and just enjoy the pace of country life.


The Lovell Telescope A trip to Cheshire offers something for everyone whether you're looking to pick up a bargain at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, nightlife or culture and heritage in the historical city of Chester or rural escapes in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Cheshire's Year of Gardens 2008 is an exciting year-long festival celebrating Gardens of Distinction in Cheshire.


Midland Hotel Morecambe Whether you're looking for a short break or a day trip, Lancashire is brimming with places to stay, attractions to visit, good food and a reputation for quality local produce. From Britain's favourite seaside resort, Blackpool, to the 300-square mile Forest of Bowland and famously home to firms such as BAE Systems, Heinz, TVR cars and the newly refurbished Midland Hotel in Morecambe, Lancashire has culture, heritage, beautiful countryside and coastlines and much more.
