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 Gloucester is located in the county of Gloucestershire and lies close to the border with Wales. The city, which also lies on the River Severn, has a rich past dating back to Roman times. At the heart of the city, and standing in College Green, is the Norman cathedral with its breathtaking fan-vaulted cloisters and great east window. From the cathedral it is only a short walk down narrow cobbled streets, past historical buildings, to the main shopping area in the city. From there it is, once again, a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its now converted warehouses. In the docks you are likely to see all manner of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. The city is also an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area and take in the splendour of the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. The Cotswolds is an area of rolling hills which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Forest of Dean is an area of mixed ancient woodland and forms a roughly triangular plateau bounded by the River Wye to the west and north, the River Severn to the south, and the City of Gloucester to the east.
