    Salford Museum

    by tvor Updated May 26, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Salford is an old historic city, very working class, housing the employees from the many mills and factories that were in the area. The museum is really nice, too, with exhibits and a Victorian replica street called Lark Hill Place with lots of storefronts and "house" fronts where you can look through the window and see rooms and shops set up. There's a local history library and temporary exhibits. Best of all, it's free!

    It's not too far to walk from the city centre or take the number 36 bus from central Manchester and it's next to the Salford Crescent rail station. If you drive, there's free parking. Also on site is a cafe and very tiny gift shop and it's on Peel Park and the University of Salford campus. It's disabled accessible as well.

    Jewish Museum

    by tvor Written Oct 5, 2006

    In Salford, there is a Jewish museum, testament to the local Jewish population. The museum outlines the history of the Jewish people from the Manchester/Salford area and housed in a restored Spanish synogogue. There are photos, recordings, exhibits. A bit out of the way but a nice little gem of a museum. Not much on the website at the moment. Says it's being revamped but the opening hours and a map are there. It's actually walkable from the city centre of Manchester and Victoria station.

    190 Cheetham Hill Road, Salford

    Closed Saturday as you would expect, Open Fridays by appointment, 10:30 - 4 Monday to
    Thursday and 11 - 5 on Sunday.

    Just strolling around the quays, taking the opportunity of capturing some reflections - not so sure I should have taken this one though - the pic shows the Anchorage buildings which incorporate the Bupa private hospital and I work for the NHS!

    There are several canal walkways apart from the main ones by the Lowry Bridge. This is Mariners Canal, near the watersports centre.
    It was opened by the Duke of York on 27th July 1989.
