Great place for something different!

A must for anyone visiting Manchester. Highlight must have been Sohos - gorgeous 50's dresses mixed with really friendly helpful service! Can't wait to come back again!

It was great to revisit a place which was central to the Madchester Era, it's stayed true to its roots offering lots of little shops producing non mainstream items

Manchester's answer to Camden market? A quirky and intriguing labyrinth of shops and cafes around which to meander. You can buy everything from make-up to retro games to tattoos to records and much much more! Check out their website for a list of shops.

I used to shop at Affleks in the 1980s when I was a student as it sold the kind of alternative clothes that I liked.. It doesn't seem to have changed as I spent an afternoon browsing with my punk/metal daughter looking over racks of second hand leather, goth dresses and all sorts of band merch and vinyl. Get away...

Afflecks is boutique shopping at it best. There's a great variety selling retro to the latest must haves and the that goes between. It's worth a visit for a coffee and a mooch around.

Afflecks is the main reason I visit Manchester, the shops are quirky and you can wander around for ages, there is clothes, jewellery, posters, action figures, tattoos and piercings, make up, whatever you are into, there is something for everyone, just go
