Owner description: 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.

An architecturally intriguing building, just wonder around and end up at the café, the shop and the exhibition.

Always a pleasure visiting the Lowry and its theatre and bars. On this occasion it was the Lyric theatre as a gift. We were in the gallery but would choose to be in the stalls near the front in future.

A wonderful exhibition although I expected much mor. In comparison to his 3000 pictures only a small percentage showing. I understand the trust do not own everything but I thought we’d be able to see a variety of prints also. Just to say don’t expect too much. However the exhibition covers most all of his themes. Beautiful is not the right word but stunning could cover it.

Fabulous building, shop, art gallery and theatre, well worth exploring for an hour or two, especially if you love the work of Lowry.

The Lyric is a great theatre. My husband and I have been several times and always had a great night. The productions are first-rate, and the Lowry's staff are always lovely!
