This is a lovely quiet shopping area with good parking. Mobility services available and scooter hire. Spacious uncrowded shops to browse in. Good stock. Nice food court. Many restaurants. Large Cinema. Pleasant, helpful staff throughout. Highly recommended. We are going there again!

I'm tempted to say that if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Shopping outlets tend to be in a 'cookie cutter' style. Chain eating places, Denby, M&S sales items, candles, discount chocolate/book/shoe shops. There are one or two individual shops (one very nice handbag shop which is worth a visit), but much of what is on show could be... More

Had an enjoyable theatre outing but as usual leaving the car park in this venue is a nightmare. It took over 1 hour 20 mins to leave from the second floor. The car park attendants want to see each ticket punched in before opening exit barriers but the exits are too few to keep the traffic moving effectively. If only... More

Dear Customer, Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry you were caught up in huge traffic jam yesterday. I understand your frustrations. The traffic jam was partly caused by road works on the far side of the quays and the temporary traffic lights near Harbour City. There was also a football kick out and a high number in... More

In comparison to the arndale mall it was nice and not full like the arndale mall. It is smaller and the food courts were busy but not stressy. And you can find a bench to sit whereas the arndale mall i was almost collapsing and there was NO WHERE a bench other than trying to find a sitting possibility in... More

Lowry Outlet will never be the Trafford Centre! It could do with a good chemist/beauty shop like Boots or Superdrug or Pizza Express but there bargains to be found especially at M&S outlet. We like to eat at Bella Italia and Cafe Rouge when we are there.Parking presently is £1 per hour.

Come here once a year and park at the Lowry as a North West based Sunderland supporter. The car park is good and obviously very busy on match days. The outlet itself is limited as there are too many clothes shops - more variety is needed. There is a decent food hall and the Lime Bar/Eatery is very good. The... More

Yet again we have returned to the Outlet and Media City UK. Plenty of things to see, do and spend in the many shops. On the Quays you eat, drink and visit some of the attractions. Well worth a visit.

We were going to the theatre to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and thought we would do some shopping in the retail outlet. What a load of rubbish, poor shop choices and poor quality of goods stocked in shops. Definitely won't be visiting again unless they knock it down and start again.
