Wow! Brilliant paintings by Lowry in this smallish, but very interesting gallery. The paintings have very interesting explanations which give you an idea of the quite solitary-sounding life he led. It's a unique and distinct style of art. As a family of four, we all...More

The Lowry is a great theatre - unlike most theatres that I visit, it's a very modern one. It's a pleasant atmosphere and I found it very comfortable. We went to see Sir Ranulph Fiennes which was a great show.

A great centre for culture. The Pre-Raphaelites exhibition is superb and a must see. The Lowry section is also very interesting. Great cafe also.

Brilliant show in a brilliant theatre. These guys are my favourite band and being Irish myself it was a great nights crack as always. Fantastic location.

Came here for the first time to watch Britain’s Got Talent auditions, really comfort seats. The seating is just right size for the audience. Lovely staff.

There is a theatre in there but it is separate to the upstairs gallery where there are plenty of Lowry's paintings on show. Well worth seeing if you like his work.
