There is a passenger drop-off point immediately in front of The Lowry.
The primary disabled parking facility for The Lowry is The Lowry Outlet Mall car park.
We recommend that Blue Badge holders enter The Lowry Outlet car park at the entrance near the mini-roundabout on the road leading from The Quays as this will allow parking on the ground floor level.
The Lowry Outlet car park offers 4 hours free parking for disabled patrons on production of their blue badge at either the Car Parking Office or at the Information Desk. For more information please contact their team on 0161 848 1850. Their website: lowryoutlet.co.uk.
The Lowry does offer two dedicated parking spaces on our service road for Blue Badge holders. These are available on a first come first served basis, and cannot be booked in advance. In addition, The Lowry will always endeavour to accommodate high sided vehicles with Blue Badges on our service road, although no guarantee can be made. These cannot be booked in advance. This is a temporary provision owing to the practical limitations of parking high sided vehicles on The Quays, and will be reviewed once the wider Quays provision is resolved.
The Lowry accepts no responsibility for vehicles parked on our service road.
All MetroLink trams are wheelchair friendly.
The Stagecoach number 50 bus stops approximately 50 metres from The Lowry entrance and they have low floor access and wheelchair spaces.
