Salford and Manchester are twin cities - like Buda and Pest or Minneapolis-St Paul – that you’d be hard put to tell apart… although proud Salfordians might disagree.
Together they make up one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the UK, with people from all backgrounds and countries living and working here. The dark satanic mills have gone, or become luxury apartments, thanks to £Ms invested in the area over the last 20 years.
5 reasons why we love Salford
- The people, of course. It’s a fact that folks in the north are friendly. Just a visit will help you feel how diverse and friendly everyone is.
- Shopping. The Northern Quarter is the place for some of the best independent vintage and boutique shops, as well as the high street favourites nearby.
- For culture vultures, the Lowry Centre has two theatres and three art galleries with a fair few of L S Lowry’s paintings of small matchstick-like figures.
- Food and drink. There are loads of amazing places to eat in Scranchester, as we’ve heard it called, as well as great markets so you can cook up a storm.
- The water. Why go to Paris or Venice when you can enjoy a water taxi or a river cruise?
Manchester was voted the top UK city to live in and one of the ten friendliest cities in the world. Sound like a great place to work?
