Escaping the city

Studying in Salford not only means you're a stone's throw away from Manchester city centre, but you're also in easy reach of a more tranquil alternative, with nature quite literally on our doorstep.

So whether it's a picnic in Peel Park or an adventure a little further afield, accessing the countryside or taking some headspace from your studies couldn't be easier (and let's face it, exploring the outdoors has been our saviour for the last year!)

Take a look below to discover scenic beauty spots close by.
