We start the day at the Lowry Centre in Salford to see the collection of painting by LS Lowry. Alternatively, just cross the Manchester Ship Canal is the Imperial War Museum North.

After lunch we visit the newly opened RHS Garden Bridgewater, the fifth Royal Horticultural Society Garden to open. The creation of the garden is one of the most significant events in the 215-year history of the RHS and its first new garden for nearly 20 years. When the RHS first discovered the 154-acre site, the former grounds of Worsley New Hall had not been cultivated for decades. Thanks to a dedicated and growing team, plus the help of hundreds of local volunteers, the site is being transformed and is currently the biggest project of its kind in Europe.

World-renowned landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith created the Bridgewater ‘masterplan’. Its centrepiece is the 11-acre Weston Walled Garden, one of the UK’s biggest, measuring the size of six football pitches and comprising 11 gardens, including The Paradise Garden, Kitchen Garden, Wellbeing Garden and Community Grow Spaces.
