Head down to The Quays for a day out on the docks
Salford and Trafford, Greater Manchester
There's always something happening at The Quays, Greater Manchester's most exciting waterfront destination.
The Quays set a powerful example for urban regeneration in the northwest of England. The site in Greater Manchester was built following the closure of Manchester Docks in 1982 and is situated along the Manchester Ship Canal, taking in the areas of Salford Quays, Trafford Wharf and Old Trafford.
They’re a great place to spend a day out, incorporating attractions as diverse as The Lowry arts centre, the Imperial War Museum North and tours of the British Broadcasting Corporation at the MediaCityUK development site.
There’s also a dynamic year-round programme of events and activities. From world-class art installations, sporting events, exhibitions and shows to walks, tours, boat trips and family-friendly activities, The Quays have it all.
The Quays are west of Manchester city centre. To get there, jump on the Metrolink tram service from Manchester city centre. Manchester is 2 hours 10 minutes from London by train.
