The Broughton area is vast and borders Manchester City Centre, bringing together a diverse mixture of housing. Future regeneration plans aim to provide a more ‘city centre’ feel to the old Salford Civic centre area of Chapel Street.  

In Upper Broughton the area contains a number of distinct neighbourhoods; Broughton Park, Gainsborough St and Hightown, the Higher Broughton Partnership area, Rock and Hill St, Wellington St West, Albert Park, the Cliffside and the Cliff neighbourhoods.  The Broughton Park area houses a very large and expanding Orthodox Jewish community and is well served by a range of specialist kosher retail outlets.
