The cathedral city of Exeter, in south west England, was the most south westerly Roman settlement in Britain and its historic cathedral, founded in the 12th century, became Anglican at the time of the reformation in the 16th century.
Exeter has a vibrant cultural scene. The Northcott Theatre, which is located on the campus of Exeter University, is one of only a few provincial theatres in England that has retained its own repertory company. The company put on an annual open air Shakespeare production in the grounds of Rougemont Castle and it is well respected nationally. The Northcott Theatre is the city's replacement to the Theatre Royal which was demolished in the 1960's. Exeter also has a number of other theatres. The New Theatre is home to the Cygnet Training Theatre and the Barnfield Theatre is a charity and is used for both professional and amateur productions.
Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street holds significant and diverse collections in areas such as zoology, anthropology, fine art, local and overseas archaeology, and geology. In 2012 the museum was awarded the United Kingdom's "Museum of the Year" by The Art Fund charity citing its "ambition and imagination".
Located within the metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, the city of Salford lies immediately to the west of the city of Manchester. Although Salford borders the city of Manchester it is a city in its own right. The city is extremely diverse, ranging from an urban city centre environment at its immediate border with the City of Manchester, into suburbia and then into open fields at semi-rural Worsley.
Like much of Greater Manchester the area is quite well served by public transport. The Metrolink tram service is reliable but pricey and it is well worth considering a Metromax day ticket if you plan a few journeys on the system. Most bus services in Salford are provided by Firstbus.
Salford now has many tourist attractions, such as Ordsall Hall, the Bridgewater Canal and the Lowry Centre, an award-winning theatre and art gallery complex, consisting of two theatres and three art galleries. The centre is named after the artist L. S. Lowry, who attended Salford School of Art and lived in nearby Pendlebury for 40 years. Many of his paintings of Salford and Manchester mill scenes, populated with small matchstick-like figures, are on display.
