“Deserted during beginning of week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Imperial War Museum and Lowry great, retail outlet disappointing, not a particularly good shopping centre unless you're a pensioner looking for a 'nice' outfit for your grandchild's wedding. If you're under 80, you'll be disappointed by the variety of shops on offer. Or over 80 and under a size 18.

“Vibrant, Shopping and Buzz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The fact that the whole area is full of food for the heart and soul, young and old alike. The shops are pretty, the water and bridges fun exhibitions of architectural beauty.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I have been hearing good things about the redeveloped Quays & we were not disappointed. We took a boat trip booked from the Lowry Tourist office which lasted an hour, pointing out some interesting points along the river which would otherwise have been easily missed along with all the obvious landmarks. Strange that the commentary didn't mention Old Trafford & football even though the stadium was looming large over the area. Media City is fascinating and its a pity we didn't have more time to look around it. They had a huge outdoor screen showing the Grand Prix practice sessions. We will return there on our next visit north.
