Salford Visitor information

Wardley Hall is an early medieval manor house and a Grade I listed building in the Wardley area of Worsley, Salford. Home to both the Bishop of Salford and the legendary screaming skull, Wardley Hall was built circa 1500 and restored and altered in the 10th century. It is one of the few buildings in the Northwest to be mentioned in the Domesday Book.

The oldest building in Salford still standing today would be the Ordsall Hall, a large former manor house in the historic parish of Ordsall. Built in 1177, the Tudor manor fully restored is listed as grade I. The mansion organises visits and tours, exhibitions, ghost nights, workshops and activities, and many other things. 

Salford Museum and Art Gallery, in Peel Park, Salford, Greater Manchester, opened to the public in November 1850 as the Royal Museum and Public Library. The gallery and museum are devoted to the history of Salford and Victorian art and architecture. The museum displays a remarkable recreation of a typical northern street during Victorian times, you can even dress up in traditional Victorian costumes to get into the spirit. 


Getting around the city and surrounding areas is easy once you’re here thanks to the fleet of buses, trams and trains available. The compact nature of the city centre also makes walking a popular choice.

Another popular choice is the free bus (formerly Metroshuttle) which provides a free ‘hop on, hop off’ service linking all of the main rail stations, shopping districts and business areas. 

The Metrolink network is one of the most successful light railway systems in the UK. With frequent services there’s no need to worry about a timetable, just head to your nearest stop and the next tram won’t be far away. Metrolink can transport you to popular venues and attractions across the region.

And in addition to the inter-city links, the rail network connects you to the neighbouring towns and districts of Greater Manchester including Ashton-under-Lyne, Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport and Wigan.

History of Salford

Salford is a borough of Manchester, located within Greater Manchester in the north west of England. 

A small but historically important religious site is the Sacred Trinity Church, as it was the first church in Salford originally built in 1368 and then converted as a dungeon to be later demolished. And was rebuilt again and consecrated the Chapel of Sacred Trinity. The building was restored a few times since and has now been classified as grade II listed building.

Salford Cathedral is one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in Northern England was built between 1844 and 1848.  The Neo-Gothic cathedral is astonishing with its beauty as it’s been a grade II listed building. Artists have designed stained and painted glass windows which are not only works of art but also visual story books. Parts of the cathedral were closely modelled on a number of other medieval churches, as the decorations of the groined vault are copied from the church of St Jacques in Liege, Belgium.

Last but not least. St Augustines is an active Anglican church in Pendlebury, designed by George Frederick Bodley and Thomas Garner and was built between 1871 and 1874. The grade 1 listed church is a lavish brick and stone building in Bodley's individual Gothic style and is the focus of a conservation area.
