What the press say…
“If you are seeking a quieter side of Manchester, try heading for Salford Quays, where culture, history and football congregate in what was once a busy working dockyard…” Daily Mail
“I’ve got a message for BBC staff in London reluctant to relocate to Manchester… get up there quick, you don’t know what you’re missing. Some of the best shopping and eating spots in the country, music for all tastes, great theatre, two top football clubs, a first-class cricket county, the list is endless.” News of the World
“Water Salford Quays is home to a clutch of cultural attractions. The café as the Lowry Arts Centre offers exceptional views over the old ship canal and the imposing Imperial War Museum, while shoppers will enjoy the Lowry Outlet Mall’s designer boutiques offering a wide range of fantastic products at bargain prices.” EasyJet
“Not so long ago, if you told a Mancunian you were planning a daytrip to Salford, they’d probably have thought you were cracking a cheap joke at their expense. Manchester’s industrial heartland was hardly a natural tourist destination, yet during the last decade one part of it has been transformed. Salford Quays, where the big cargo ships used to dock, has become a place to hang out and have fun, and its main attraction is the Lowry, named after Salford’s favourite son.” The Guardian
