When you are traveling to Salford, in Greater Manchester, you know that you are going to have the time of your life. I made that trip two months ago and it was genuinely amazing. I started my visit with Salford but ended up visiting Manchester, Stockport, Oldham and Warrington as well. Our traveling group was quite large, so we had to stay at two hotels: Travelodge (18 Markendale Place) and Premier Inn (The Quays, Salford). As one of our friends had a physical problem, we arranged for a wheelchair accessible taxi to take him all around Salford. The rest of us traveled with one of those spacious minibuses, which was pretty great.
We arranged for a group tour to the Salford Museum & Art Gallery. In this way, we were presented with information on each piece of art and had an amazing time. From the museum, the group traveled to Buile Hill Park. If you are a fan of green spaces, then you will certainly fall in love with this park. We walked through its wonderful alleys, discovering the carefully arranged greenery and enjoying the open outdoors. Our groups returned to the hotel late at night, with several executive cars.
From Salford to Gatwick airport, we traveled with an airport taxi. The driver drove just fine, covering the 242 miles distance in 3 hours and 46 minutes. We paid £422 for a saloon car. A part of the group traveled from Salford to Manchester airport; they used a taxi cab to cover the 11 miles distance in just 19 minutes and they paid £100 for a minibus. As for myself, I made sure I relaxed on the road at Cromwell Lodge (9-11 North Bar Place, Banbury) and at Travelodge Hotel (Lichfield Road, Stafford). As for restaurants, I enjoyed The Old Auctioneer (44 Parson’s Street, Banbury) and The Post House (35 Greengate Street, Stafford).
