Entertain the kids with a family fun day out to Salford Quays

Salford Quays, Salford

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t always rain in Manchester. But when it does, there are still plenty of things to see and do.

Head down to Salford Quays and begin the day with a visit to IWM North which offers a great day out for all the family all year round with free entry to the Museum, and family friendly exhibitions and activities.

Take a short walk over to The Lowry - which kids will love with its bright orange staircases, sloping blue floors and purple and glass walls, with lots of secret corners waiting to be discovered.With family fun throughout the building, guided tours, the Meet Mr Lowry film, plus participatory activity for all ages, The Lowry should definitely be on your list.

Refuel with a bite to eat in the brand-new Pier Eight restaurant or try and catch a matinee performance at one of The Lowry’s stunning theatres. Or head over to MediaCityUK and take part in a fascinating CBBC Interactive Tour. Kids will be able to have a go at being a CBBC presenter or find out how it feels to present the news and weather.

Finally, kick back and relax in the comfort of your stylish and contemporary family bedroom at the Ramada Salford Quays – located in the heart of all of the action with picturesque views of this beautiful waterfront destination.
