Information on where to park

Car parking: The closest parking to The Lowry can be found at the nearby Quayside car park.

However, this car park can be very busy when there are events taking place elsewhere on the Quays so you may want to consider alternative parking options.

Blue Badge Holders: Spaces are in the Quayside. The Lowry also offers two Blue Badge parking spaces available on a first come first served basis. They cannot be booked in advance and we accept no responsibility for vehicles parked in these spaces.

You can pre-pay for your parking on the day for £6 by taking your car parking ticket to any pay station in the Quayside between 5pm and 8pm. Insert your car parking ticket, select Lowry pre-pay, tap validation and pay. Doing this means no queue to leave the car park after your visit. Your ticket will be valid between 5pm – 1am. Please note there is no facility to pay for parking in The Lowry.

Taxi: Salford Quays Taxis – 0161 660 6666, First Taxis – 0161 930 8888, 1010 Taxis (private hire) – 0161 793 1010. A taxi rank is situated outside of The Lowry.

Coach: Download the Quays coach parking map.

The Lowry Coach Park holds up to 25 coaches and is free. There is a drop-off point in front of The Lowry.


The Lowry does not have its own car park however parking is available at the Quayside multi-storey car park (formally Lowry Outlet).

You can purchase a car park ticket via The Lowry which can be used at the Quayside – however this must be purchased more than 24hrs before your visit.
