  • One of the most iconic buildings in Britian. Any visit to Manchester is not complete without this. Don't just stop outside and pose for "the photo" go in and take in living history. The volunteers here are amazing stop listen discuss and buy a salt and pepper set.
  • an amazing place, not just for Smiths fans but for people interested in the history of old and new Salford really. I went in on a Saturday (it's only open for public on Saturday mornings), got a cup of tea and an amazing tour of the place. Also great for unique (Smiths) souvenirs. Hope this place will exist for at least another 113 years
  • Does great work in the local community. And interesting for the musical connections.
  • Iconic. A must if you are a Smiths fan. Enjoy it and take it all in.
  • A must see for any smiths fans. Just be says the area is in its pretty rough and the kids will hassle you if and when you try to take pictures.
