- Art lover? Head straight to The Lowry. This iconic gallery is home to the world’s largest collection of works by LS Lowry, one of the best loved British artists of the 20th century.
- Science buff? You’ll love the innovative exhibitions and hands-on activities at the Museum of Science and Industry.
- The city’s location in the north west of England also makes it a great base for walking the Pennines – a rugged mountain range described as the backbone of England.
