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.


If you are planning to park at the Quayside multi-storey car park (formally Lowry Outlet) please be aware that new procedures are in place and there are now limited entrances and exits to the car park.

Theatre customers will be able to enter through the Waterside lobby near the customer toilets but after 8pm the centre will be locked down. The Plaza doors will be closed and if you are returning to the car park after 8pm you need to use one of the street level entrances.

For customers with specific access needs there is access into the centre via the 3 street level entrances at the Waterside which take you through to the Underground Car Park or the Waterside Car Park lobby which has stairs or 2 lifts.

Quayside will have officers available to direct customers during the changeover and signage will be in place. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to your visit. For further information please see


Access onto The Quays is now restricted to the Broadway roundabout end at the top end of Trafford Rd from Regent Road (past Oasis Academy).
