Why Choose Quayside Tours

Quayside Tours believe that the Salford Quays area deserves to be celebrated and its story told. They love nothing more than to share its beauty and history. Salford Quays is one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in the UK yet few realise the historical and cultural significance of the area – let alone the fact that it’s part of the greenest city in the UK! Their walking tours are designed to give you an insight into what makes the Quays so special. The tours are renowned for being a fact-filled fun fest for all the family!
