Peel Park, The Crescent, Salford, M5 4PD – Visit Now

Having fallen into disrepair, the area is now undergoing refurbishment, having been bestowed £1.6 million by the Heritage Lottery fund. Having been painted in the past by LS Lowry, Peel Park was put back on the map a couple of years ago by American photographer Spencer Tunick when he dropped off a busload of naked volunteers and snapped them alongside the old rosebeds. For more culture while you’re here, visit Salford Museum & Art Gallery and the Working Class Movement Library – they overlook the park.
