Salisbury is a cathedral city located in the county of Wiltshire and lies at the edge of Salisbury Plain. The city also lies on the confluence of five rivers: the Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, the Bourne and a tributary of the River Avon. Salisbury cathedral is formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. The main part of the cathedral was completed between 1220 and 1258. The cathedral's spire is the tallest in the UK and 123m. Visitors are able to take the "Tower Tour" where the interior of the spire can be viewed. The cathedral also has the largest cloister and the largest cathedral close in Britain. It also houses the world's oldest working clock, from AD 1386.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stonehenge, is just under 10 miles from Salisbury which attracts many visitors to Salisbury. The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum is located in the King's House which is a Grade I listed building dating back to the 13th century. The Pitt Rivers gallery contains a collection from General Augustus Pitt Rivers who is often regarded as the "father of modern archeology".
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.
