The Lowry is a dramatic, award winning landmark located at the heart of contemporary Salford Quays, only a few miles away from Manchester city centre. Our contemporary arts venue offers a range of unique spaces to create your perfect day. Our circular Compass Room is truly stunning. Privately located on the top floor of the building, the space is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows which give a 360-degree view of Salford Quays. A private balcony also means that you and your guests can step outside to enjoy the magnificent views. The Compass Room comes with the option of lighting the room with a bespoke canopy of fairy lights. The Compass Room can accommodate upto 150 for a ceremony and 200 for a reception. For ceremonies and smaller receptions, choose from either our Hexagon and Pier Eight rooms, which are intimate spaces with fantastic waterside views. We understand that every wedding is as individual and unique as every bride and groom and we pride ourselves on our bespoke service. We believe that our special day should not have to fit into a package - each detail no matter how large or small should be exactly how you want it to be. To plan your perfect day contact our wedding co-ordinator today.
