The Lowry Museum at Salford Quays from Manchester Airport

Hi

We're staying at Manchester Airport later this year and thought we might arrive early and visit the Lowry Museum as we keep promising ourselves we'll do this. Is it easy to do this by public transport from the airport?

Thanks

The Lowry is well worth doing and quite easy via public transport from the airport. Firstly go by train (station within the airport, and regular service) to Manchester Piccadilly Rail Station. Then go down escalators to get the Metrolink Tram service from there towards Eccles or Media City, getting off at Salford Quays tram stop.

This link will help.

Also just a few mins walk from Lowry Gallery is the Imperial War Museum North; also well worth a visit; instructive & moving and quite different when the whole museum turns into a sight & sound display every hour or so. Good cafes at both Lowry and IWMN.

And if you're really keen and have more time, Manchester United Stadium tour/ museum etc is only a further 5 mins walk away.

Just to echo KWUK, the Imperial War Museum North is well worth a visit. They have some good exhibitions on at various times of the year also.
