The City of Salford lies within the metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester in the north west of England and lies in a meander of the River Irwell which forms part of its boundary with the City of Manchester to the east. Salford grew to become a major factory during the 18th and 19th centuries specialising on cotton and silk spinning in the local mills which attracted many families which in turn enhanced the economy of the city. Additionally, Salford Docks was an important dock on the Manchester Ship Canal, which connected Manchester to the Mersey Estuary.
The area that was home to Salford Docks fell into disrepair following the demise of the docks. However, following a period of regeneration the area, now known as Salford Quays, is home to many hotels, apartments, museums, bars and restaurants. Some of the more well known inhabitants of Salford Quays are the MediaCityUK, home of the BBC and The Lowry Centre which is a gallery and theatre centre. Its name taken from the prominent early 20th century artist L.S. Lowry, who lived and worked in Salford and its surrounding areas for more than 40 years.
Notable people from Salford include Emmeline Pankhurst who was one of the founders of the suffragette movement.
The city of Chester lies close to the border with Wales and is located in the north west of England in the county of Cheshire. There are many things to do in the city including visiting the Roman walls and wandering along The Groves or around the historic market town. The Groves is Chester's own promenade that runs alongside the River Dee from Grosvenor Park to the Old Handlebridge. The Groves was established as a promenade in the early 18th century.
For visitors interested in horse racing, Chester Racecourse is located on the Roodee which was originally the site of the Roman Port. If visitors want to see some of the racing action for free then the Roman walls walk you right past a view of the action.
Roman remains can still be seen in the city, particularly in the basements of some of the city's buildings and also in the lower parts of the northern section of the city walls. Perhaps the most important feature is the amphitheatre just outside the walls. Roman artifacts are on display in the Roman Gardens which run parallel to the city walls from Newgate to the River Dee.
