The Lowry, Pier 8, Salford Quays, Salford, M50 3AZ – Visit Now

With two theatres, galleries and a studio space, The Lowry ably combines the performing and visual arts. It holds and displays works from the world’s largest collection of work by the Old Trafford born artist, L.S. Lowry, although its galleries also have a changing programme of contemporary exhibitions with a new focus on digital arts. In addition to award-winning theatre, The Lowry hosts touring popular acts, classical, dance and opera.

Sitting opposite Media City (and just a stone’s throw from the Media City tram stop, making it easily accessible from the city centre), The Lowry boasts a decent cafe (with good kids’ options), a rated restaurant and ‘terrace bar’, plus shop. For kids, there are activity backpacks and a small, dedicated activity area within the galleries.
