The Lowry in Salford Quays, Manchester, UK

The Lowry


The 14th International Symposium on Metal-Hydrogen Systems will be held in the The Lowry, an international arts and entertainment centre in the regenerated docklands area of Salford Quays in Greater Manchester, UK.

It occupies an iconic building by the side of Salford Quays and is named after L. S. Lowry, a painter whose international reputation continues to grow. He created a permanent image of Manchester/Salford as it used to be and of the people who lived here. The art gallery in the Centre contains the largest collection of his work. It also contains two theatres, the smaller of which, the Quays Theatre, we will be using for our plenary sessions.

The Lowry is only a short distance away from Central Manchester and all the city has to offer.

The Salford Quays Development, MediaCity UK and the BBC

The Salford Quays redevelopment including MediaCityUK is now a major venue, particularly since the BBC North occupied its new headquarters and Granada – makers of the long running soap - Coronation Street – also moved in. Beside the BBC, there is an impressive piazza on which we plan to hold an exhibition of hydrogen-fuel cell cars.

The Metrolink tram

The centre of Manchester is well served by the Metrolink tram system. In particular, there is a good service from Media City (beside the BBC building) and the centre of the city. The recommended hotels are either close to The Lowry or in the centre of the city which is also where the main concentration of restaurants are to be found.
