Salford offers a variety of bars and restaurants for students to enjoy. Check out The King’s Arms for drinks and food, and entertainment in the form of live music, theatre and comedy. Corridor Bar is a great setting where you can relax and unwind with a cocktail and enjoy music designed to set a unique mood.
Salford is close to Manchester City Centre, which boasts an array of vibrant nightlife areas, with honourable mentions to Spinningfields, Canal Street and Junkyard Golf Club. Manchester also has a booming live music scene, with nightly gigs and genres to suit all tastes.
But entertainment isn’t just about the nightlife. You’ll find culture on our doorstep: Salford Museum and Art Gallery is situated on the University of Salford campus, and Ordsall Hall is widely regarded as Salford’s ‘hidden gem’.
Even if your course isn't based at MediaCityUK, we'd recommend you find out for yourself what's so special about Salford Quays. With The Lowry, Imperial War Museum North, theatres, galleries, designer shopping, river cruises, museums, modern architecture, water sports, football, cricket, there’s certainly something for everyone!
