Salford Quays – People watching heaven

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.

Admittedly that’s a little trickier in the winter, but if you wrap up warm and are lucky enough to visit on a sunny day there’s nothing I like better than taking a hot drink down to the waterfront and indulging in one of my favourite pastimes – people watching.

The Quays regularly hold markets where you can find some of Manchester’s best independent businesses and streetfood stalls.

Of course if it does get too cold outside The Lowry Theatre is one of my favourite places to get a dose of culture with lots of shows and screenings to choose from as well as the permanent LS Lowry art exhibition, which is well worth a visit!
