There’s always a lot going on at Salford Quays – it’s home to the Lowry Theatre, The Imperial War Museum, a shopping outlet, countless restaurants and the famous MediaCity UK, but even though there’s always something to do my favourite thing to do here is nothing at all.
When the weather is good, there’s nothing better than a stroll around the Quays followed by simply sitting and watching the world go by. My usual routine is to grab a coffee and a quick bite to eat, take it down to the waterfront and indulge in one of my favourite pastimes – people watching. It’s my idea of a perfect afternoon!
The Quays also host a wonderful market every now and then, where you can buy crafts, jewellery, homeware and – my favourite – lots of locally-produced food and drink. If you’re feeling particularly extravagant, an afternoon cruise is also a great way to get a good look at the Quays as spring starts to make an appearance.
