A tour is coming to Salford documenting the deep history of the Quays.
The tour will document the Quays’ journey from when it was once the fourth largest port in the country to the media hub it is today.
The circuit of the Quays will inform attendees of what used to be known merely as a dock, and how it has transformed into not only the home of BBC and Coronation Street but also the Lowry Shopping Centre and Theatre.
Lasting two hours, for any Salford Resident or history junkie the fascinating past of the Quays will be worth attending.
