For so long, Salford has been shadowed by its neighbour, Manchester but now, Salford is finally finding its own name and fame through the growing university and the move of the BBC to Salford Quays.
The University of Salford
The University of Salford is growing in popularity, providing courses in a wide range of subjects and taking a keen interest in offering students courses where they can learn practical skills for their future careers. It is also more understanding of the needs of international students and aims to helps students in all areas of their life in Salford.
This was originally the docking area for the boats delivering goods to Manchester in the Industrial Revolution. For this reason, it is full of canals and quays, bridges and boats. The skyline of the Quays is particularly great at night and a romantic walk down the tree-lined street gives you a great view of Manchester United's Old Trafford across the water.
The Lowry Theatre
This theatre has the biggest stage in Britain as well as two other smaller stages. For relatively low prices, you can see here a great range of shows and talent.
The Lowry Outlet
This shopping centre is full of shops with products at a discount. You can find some great bargains here as well as bars, restaurants, cafes and a cinema.
The BBC has recently relocated to Salford and so a brand new area has been created including the studios and apartments, hotels and restaurants and also part of the university can be found here.
The Water Sports Club
With all the water on the quays, it is logical that there would be a great waters sports centre for rowing, sailing and kayaking. The canals run all the way to Castlefield from here and the waterways are often used in national competitions.
Salford has been proud to receive a massive amount of funding from the European Union to regenerate its most historical and prestigious street, Chapel Street. On this street can be found the university, the cathedral, and many of Salford's local businesses. Over the next years it will see the building of new walkways, apartments, shops and office blocks. Bexley Square is Salford's most historical local area and is located just off Chapel Street and close to the crossroads, which link Salford to Manchester.
The Angel Centre
This is where Language Cafe began and inside this building there is a wonderful warmth and local community. There is the fantastic Creation Cafe providing great homemade food and occasional live entertainment nights. There is also a doctor's surgery, a counselling service, arts and crafts classes and yoga and pilates.
Arts and Music
Salford is home to some greta local talent in music and the arts. The Creative Media Centre in Bexley Square has recording studios for music practice as well as a range of educational courses. Islington Mill has exhibition space for artists, and yoga classes and a cafe. Next door to Language Cafe is also The Midi Centre which is growing in fame for its DJ, music production and music business courses.
The Imperial War Museum is Salford's biggest museum with exhibitions from the two world wars and items from more recent combat too. On the Campus of Salford University is a wonderful museum and art gallery with a street made to look how it would have been years ago. The beautiful Ordsall Hall has been been wonderfully restored and is free for visitors to look around the grand old rooms.
