Salford Quays Tourist Information

The city of Salford is most well-known for its spectacular waterfront, the Salford Quays, an iconic feast of modern architecture. A selection of world class museums, business quarters, luxury hotels, entertainment and retail venues are here including The Lowry Arts and Entertainment Venue, the Lowry Outlet Mall, Ordsall Hall, the Mersey Ferries and MediaCity UK and the Imperial War Museum as well as the Salford Watersport Centre.

The Lowry Outlet Mall contains a range of high street and designer brands available at great value prices alongside a choice of cafes and eateries, plus a Vue Cinema. The Lowry just opposite is a multi-purpose cutting edge venue featuring conference facilities, a theatre with regular live performances, galleries inclusive of one of the best collections of artwork by the artist Lowry and a choice of restaurants and bars including the acclaimed Lowry Restaurant, Terrace Bars, theatre bars and the Tower Coffee Shop.

Historic Ordsall Hall is an impressive manor house thought to be haunted, or if great outdoor activities are your preference, enjoy a host of watersports and adventure activities available at the Salford Watersports Centre where you can take part in everything from kayaking to windsurfing, power boating to dinghy sailing. Alternatively enjoy a full-day trip with Mersey Ferries along the full stretch of Manchester Ship Canal which is flanked by some of the North West’s most striking architecture.
