Salford is a city in north-west England, located to the west of Manchester.

Coronation Street creator Tony Warren was born in Salford, and his inspiration for the design of the eponymous street came on a visit to the now-demolished Archie Street in the Ordsall district of Salford in 1960.

Since 2009, Granada has been based at MediaCity studios in Salford Quays. In 2013, production of Coronation Street moved from Granada's old studio on Quay Street in Manchester to MediaCity, where the show has been produced from since.
