The city of Salford's northern boundary is with the boroughs of Bolton and Bury and its southern boundary is with Trafford. To the west is bounded by Wigan and by Manchester to the east. The city has excellent public transport links and has nine railway stations situated on 4 different routes. The city's railway stations are Eccles, Patricroft, Irlam, Clifton, Swinton, Moorside, Walkden, Salford Central and Salford Crescent. The city also has the Eccles Line of the Manchester Metrolink which runs through the city with stations at Exchange Quay, Salford Quays, Anchorage, Harbour City, Broadway, Langworthy, Weaste, Ladywell and Eccles. Salford also has bus stations at Pendleton and Eccles with services throughout the city, and to Greater Manchester and beyond.
The city grew during the Industrial Revolution as a result of the textile industry. Despite its success Salford was dominated by its neighbour, Manchester. In 1894, the Manchester Ship Canal was opened which ran from the River Mersey to Salford Quays. When it was complete it was the largest navigation canal in the world. Along the route of the canal, it was necessary to create an aqueduct carrying the Bridgewater Canal over the Ship Canal.
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Wolverhampton isn't well known as a tourist attraction, those visiting friends at the University, enjoying a football match at the famous Molineux Stadium or attending a concert at one of the fine local music venues will probably be pleasantly surprised by what this city has to offer.
Bus services originate from the city's bus station, which is located close to the railway station. There are regular services to all parts of the city, although it should be noted that many services stop at around 11pm. Buses from Wolverhampton also travel to the towns of the Black Country (including Dudley, Sandwell, West Bromwich and Walsall) and to Birmingham, although the journey by road can be quite long.
A more recent addition to Wolverhampton's public transport system is the Midland Metro. Regular and frequent trams start at Wolverhampton St George's stop in Bilston Street (very close to the city's main shopping area on Dudley Street) and pass via Bilston, Wednesbury, West Bromwich and Sandwell, and terminate at Birmingham Snow Hill railway station, a few minutes walk from Birmingham New Street railway station.
