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.

Sparce but nice shopping outlet. Take time out to visit the Lowry Museum - a brilliant painter and a really nice experience. Find out about the man too.

I'm not a theatre expert but again the actual theatre itself seemed good, we were sited in the upper stalls and... More

Saw Wicked with friends which was absolutely fantastic. Only problem is that the view of the stage was partially blocked by the man in the row in front of me. Not his fault I know but the theatre would have had 5 rather than 4 if it was not for this.

I recently went to the Lowry to watch 'Wicked' with my 2 children, the whole experience was excellent. Booking tickets on line was easy, even though I had left it quite late, there were still a few seats available. It was easy to find the price of seats & book. I had seen that The Lowry offer a 'combo' ticket... More

We had an amazing view. Entrance was quick and easy, staff pleasant enough. The only downfall that I can comment on, was that it is... More
