Salford has a negative reputation in the UK due to the high levels of crime and poverty in the city. Its population is among the most deprived in the country and many of its residents are unemployed and receiving financial assistance from the UK government. However, it must be noted that in recent years, Salford has improved in certain areas thanks to multiple regeneration projects.

When moving to Manchester, England, one should consider the huge amount of rainfall that falls in this city day in and day out. One should make sure to come here with a good supply of umbrellas and a variety of coats, and many hats and gloves! Despite the grim weather, Northerners are known to be very friendly and will assist you on any issue that you may encounter when settling into this new town.
