  • I used to really enjoy coming to the Lowry outlet as it was a lot quieter than heading into Manchester city centre or Trafford centre and parking was free if a small purchase was made. There were some...  read more »
  • Not visited the outlet for about twelve months and decided on a visit today but totally disappointed. The parking fee is not a problem for me just the lack and choice of shops. The outlet is lovely an...  read more »
  • Lots of spaces in the car park then found out why - had to pay to park @ £1 per hour! The place was pretty much empty with some recent looking closures and many tired shops flogging stuff off cheap as...  read more »
  • The Lowry is a multi-story, multi-venue shopping, entertainment and arts centre located on the banks of Salford Quay and very close to Media City. The shops inside are the usual outlet/mall fodder you'd expect and the restaurants vary from Burger King to some more upmarket offerings. Probably the highlights of the centre are the cinema, which offers posh and luxurious adult "gold class" screens and the art gallery/ theatre which always have something worth looking at. Parking is abundant, relatively cheap (and refunded at the cinema) and it never gets too busy. Which is why I actually prefer it to the Trafford Centre, which is frequently mobbed. If the weather is nice, the outside areas are quite well laid out. But don't expect to be able to get to the Imperial War Museum North without a swim or a long walk, it's on the other side of the Manchester Ship Canal. But if you head towards "The Lowry" you'll find a convenient and attractive bridge will be of some help in getting across the frigid water.
  • Top quality outlet shopping centre with plenty of national and international shopping chains and brands at fantastic prices. The cinema is great too, with giant screens and friendly helpful staff. Easy access from parking and tram and bus services. The ideal place to get a good value hassle free Christmas shopping day in.
  • A reasonable shopping mall, with a small selection of shops. Not usually very busy because of its size, but can be busy on match days as it's near Old Trafford. By comparison, the Trafford centre has all the main high street brands, and must be more than 5 times the size. Also has a food court and cinema. Your used to get free parking of you bought something, but now it's £1 per hour.
  • It's a little outlet mall with a limited number of stores and a small food court. A few 'big' names, M&S have a clothes and a home store, Gap, Clarkes, Denby, Black and Decker, and we're getting toward the end of the list. The Vue cinema is good, generally not too busy and it's free to park if you remember to get your ticket validated at the cinema. The Lowry theatres are just across the piazza so you can combined a bit of shopping with a cultural event. Don't bother trying to get off the car park when the theatre empties, allow half an hour to wander round or have a Nandos before you go back to the car. And there's a Costa for the coffee and cake. Nice.
  • I have visited the Lowry Centre quite regularly over recent years. It is noticeable that the popularity of the centre has steadily increased and it is an improved shopping experience. There is now a charge for parking. The first issue is the fact that there is a charge at all. As I went to pay, several people commented that they will not be coming back," it is free to park at the Trafford Centre and the Tariffs are not Sensible. It is visibly noticeable that the car park was largely empty and the footfall was negligible. As commented by the staff I spoke to in the stores I visited. You really need to review your parking strategy, as I am sure your retailers will be approaching you. With the same concerns. Regards Michael Angel
