  • If you are a fan of The Smiths, then this is definitely the place to visit. The Salford Lads Club is the iconic location of where the LP sleeve photo of The Queen Is Dead was taken. Very friendly atmosphere always at least one Smiths fan there and the "Smiths Shrine" inside is very good also!
  • Went to the pop up shop when Morrissey was in town. The Smiths room is fantastic, but it was actually the local people and the history of the club I was really impressed with. Very welcoming
  • Brilliant memorabilia site for smiths fans
  • Not really for women my son and partner found it ok
  • A morrissey tribute destination
