Fancy a culture filled day out in Manchester? Why not try the Lowry Arts Centre! With free entry for all and a huge host of different things to see and do, the Lowry Arts Centre is one of the most coveted places to go in Manchester.
Laurence Stephen Lowry was an artist born in Stratford, and is famous for painting scenes of life based in the industrial districts of North Western England in the mid-20th century. Best known for vast landscapes with human figures known as matchstick men, Lowry currently holds the record for most rejected British honours, including having rejected a Knighthood in 1968.
His collections can be seen in the Lowry Art Centre along with an informative ‘Meet Mr Lowry’ film which is shown between 10am and 5pm daily. As well as the arts gallery, the Lowry Centre is also home to the Tower Cafe, the Hexagon Bar and the Lowry Restaurant, where you can snack or dine in for a range of good food and drink.
The Lowry Shop has a huge collection of the Artists books, postcards and other gifts, and the entire centre is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Easy to get to; the Lowry can be reached by half hourly buses, or try our Manchester Coach Hire for excellent rates.
