LS Lowry, who gave his name to both the arts centre and the Lowry Outlet, was a 20th century artist most famous for recreating the atmosphere of the urban and working class districts of north west England with his ‘matchstick men’ style. Once the third busiest port in England, despite being nearly 40 miles inland at the head of the Manchester Ship Canal, Salford Quays is now a major centre for business, leisure, arts, sport and the media. Manchester United, one of the world’s most famous football clubs, play at nearby Old Trafford; The Lowry theatre and gallery hosts some of the world’s greatest musicians and artists and the Imperial War Museum North has brought historic exhibitions to new audiences. Modern rail, tram and motorway links into the area make the Lowry Outlet and the wide range of other local activities easily accessible from across the north west of England and north midlands.
Inside the purpose built Lowry Outlet centre standard discounts of up to 60%, with some seasonal discounts of up to 75%, are available at outlet stores for traditional brands such as Next, Gap, Clarks and M&S.
