Salford is a city constantly changing and moving into an exciting future as a thriving cultural, economic and residential location.
From urban buzz to greenbelt tranquility, Salford is building on the mixture of its waterfront, urban and countryside environments to create places where people want to live, work, invest and visit.
Salford is about 200 miles north west of London. With excellent road and public transport links to all parts of the UK, the city is well placed as a visitor and commercial centre. And Manchester International Airport, gateway to over 200 international destinations, is just a few miles away too.
The city of Salford covers 37 square miles and the five districts of Salford, Eccles, Worsley, Irlam and Cadishead, and Swinton and Pendlebury. Some 249,000 people are proud to call Salford their home.
The Blackfriars, Broughton and Ordsall districts of central Salford are just one minute's walk from the heart of Manchester's shopping and central business districts - just across the River Irwell which joins the two cities.
Salford's closeness to Manchester city centre makes it an important part of the economy and culture that is driving England's north west forward. Salford and Manchester enjoy a unique situation: their connection creates a wealth of opportunities ranging from the potential for business relocation and development to establishing Salford's waterways and watersides as key regional and national visitor attractions and turning the city into a residential area of choice within Greater Manchester.
