Manchester's City Centre Cruises joins The Quays Partnership

Manchester's City Centre Cruises has joined The Quays Partnership, the team that promotes The Quays as a tourism destination in Britain.

City Centre Cruises specialise in an exclusive cruising restaurant and a party boat, with the two vessels named in tribute to two iconic figures who lived and worked in Manchester and Salford, LS Lowry and Emmeline Pankhurst.

The cruises are available all year round for groups, where guests can enjoy views of contemporary waterside developments spanning Manchester city centre to The Quays.

The boats are available for private charter events, including sit down meals or buffets, to Sunday lunch cruises, historical cruises and match day travel to Manchester United Football Club.

The Quays partnership is comprised of a range of cultural, sporting and leisure destinations, including The Lowry, IWM North, part of Imperial War Museums, Emirates Old Trafford, home of Lancashire County Cricket Club, Manchester Cruises, Mersey Ferries and the Lowry Outlet. Also included in the partnership is The Old Trafford Lodge and The Copthorne Manchester, Salford & Trafford Councils, the Manchester Tourist Board, Marketing Manchester and MediaCityUK.
