The Lowry Centre

Developed in the 1990's as part of the urban regeneration of the Salford docks, the Lowry Centre ascribes to the "all under one roof" school of cultural industry. It's a philosophy that works well, with the Lowry's mix of theatres, workshops and travelling exhibitions attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. There is also a good selection of cafe's and a bookshop, not to mention a permanent display of L.S. Lowry's paintings.
