Ever wondered what it would be like to have waterfront views and tranquil walks on your doorstep, yet still be among the vibrant action? Well now you can turn those thoughts in to a living reality, by exploring life as a MediaCity dweller! We’ve summarised five of the best reasons to live in Salford Quays:

1. Stunning Scenery

You’ll wake up to great views here in Salford Quays, from beautiful sunsets over the waterside, to the bright lights of the media centres. There’s a great mixture of it all. Take a stroll over the Millennium footbridge for the perfect view of the area in full. You’ll find spectacular architecture including the unique shapes of The Lowry Theatre and Imperial War Museum, as well as relaxing spots such as the Blue Peter Garden for you to unwind and take in all the scenery.

2. Awesome Entertainment

Even though you’re just out of the city centre madness, there’s not a chance of being bored in MediaCity UK. Sit back and enjoy a show at The Lowry Theatre, or the big screen at VUE cinema in the outlet shopping centre. A super sporty hub, Salford Quays is home to an array of fitness activities. Hit the water and have a go at wakeboarding or canoeing, or if Sunday football is more your vibe, then home games at Old Trafford will become a regular occurrence. The Imperial War Museum offers a great day out for those interested in digging deep in to historic conflicts, and of course, right next door is Coronation Street; now open to set tours and guides so you can take a walk on the cobbles yourself.

3. Excellent Employers

Relocating for the right career is always a good choice when it comes to Salford Quays and the area’s excellent employment opportunities. MediaCity by name, media giant by nature, this hub is now home to one of the largest media enterprise locations in Europe, and is the beating heart of film, TV and Radio.
