The Lowry's waterfront location is just outside of Manchester city centre, in Salford Quays. With public transport links including a convenient tram stop and car parking opposite, getting to Retrofit 2012 couldn't be easier.
From national railway stations, Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria you can travel to The Lowry by Metrolink tram. You can board an Eccles line tram and should alight at Harbour City, or Media City UK for trams which stop there, as this is slightly closer.
Manchester is well connected and with direct train connections to all major UK cities. Trains come into Piccadilly or Victoria station, both of which connect to the Metrolink which provides easy access to The Lowry.
