“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Visited in Jan 2014 to see warhorse at the Lowry. The quays have been regenerated to include a small shopping mall, imperial war museum north and the bbc / itv media centre. Only negative was the amount of rubbish floating in the manchester shipping canal.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We took the marvellous tram to the quays and Media City. What a transformation. We had a good look around and lunch too and bought a few goodies in the outlet centre. Well worth going

“Not what expected”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

An expanse of water - may be more appealing in the summer. Like an upmarket housing estate. Think we were at wrong end of town few restaurants near the theatre but not much choice

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We went here primarily too go to theatre to see war horse (it's back in July) the theatre is excellent
The quays areas is great with plenty off places to eat, drink and see we went into the outlet shopping mall
Which was very nice
Do agree with fizzuk about both the rowers and the rubbish but if people where to look after there own litter would not be an issue
