Huge docks which once harboured the world’s ocean-going liners. Gleaming museums of the modern age. A world famous canal, as deep as Suez, as powerful as the Panama. Here a new city – MediaCity, a millennial metropolis – has risen, a city of glass, steel and burnished metal, bold and brilliant.
* Meet Salford Quays Metrolink stop, 6pm. Tour ends at the Dockyard pub.
