The Lowry is a lovely complex with many attributes but the shopping is not one of them. Huge potential for a great shopping centre but at present, there are more vacant shops than occupied ones which give an empty feeling. The best ones are gap outlet, m&s outlet, claires, some camping outlets and some homeware outlets but not my first... More

Easy to spend a long time looking around here. Something for everyone and a wide variety or shops and eateries. Parking tickets also gets stamped when u spend £5 in a shop so you then pay less for your parking - which, every little helps! The cinema is good and also plenty of things to do surrounding the outlet

If you like shopping then it will be right up your street, decent selection of high street outlets supposedly with bargains, but I don't like shopping so not my cup of tea. But if you want a cup of tea there are plenty of places to enjoy one, however I'd suggest you cross the dock and enjoy one at one... More

For the area I find that this outlet is poor. There is a sad feeling to the place yet it has so much potential. The two times I have visited the outlet has been very empty, and I had wondered why. But on closer inspection its obvious why - because there aren't any shops or other activities to do. The... More

No worries about blowing your salary here. Tons of empty units, shops you've never heard of and no variety at all. It's never changed. This place needs a revamp considering that MediaCity is on its door step

Only entered the mall to escape the rain but the instant reminder of the early days of malls in the UK, I decided to explore, thinking 'it's got to get better'. Wrong . Mr Lowry's name attached to this place is a real insult.

This isn't really to the normal standard of an Outlet facility, only a few branded stores, Gap, M&S, Claire's, Whittards, Cadbury but most other stores were more like market stalls put into a shop unit. Eating and drinking facilities are fine but as a shopping experience it was a real let down.
