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.

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

RHS Garden Bridgewater
