Owner description: Situated on the waterside at the heart of The Quays, The Lowry is a stunning, award winning building housing two vibrant theatres, a studio space, relaxing art galleries, cafés, bars, a restaurant, souvenir gift shop and Salford’s Tourist Information Centre. With a huge variety of performances, The Lowry's Lyric and Quays Theatres offer a wealth of fabulous entertainment, including West End musicals, the very best in drama, live bands, famous comedians, plus world class dance and opera.Gallery entry is free and you can enjoy the work of one of the nation's favourite artists, LS Lowry, in changing exhibitions of his work which we hope will offer some surprises. At the same time, experience work by artists of local, national and international renown to compliment our Lowry exhibitions. There's always something new and refreshing to see in our galleries.With family fun throughout the building, guided tours, the Meet Mr Lowry film, plus participatory activity for all ages, The Lowry is a great day out.

Did not realise the Lowry also painted landscapes and portraits. Plenty of seating available opposite the larger paintings to be able to take in every detail. Very interesting place to visit

We took our kids to Manchester recently and The Lowry was close to our hotel, so we decided to go for a walk. There is so much to do in and around The Lowry, we were never bored. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

An architecturally intriguing building, just wonder around and end up at the café, the shop and the exhibition.
