A huge selection of different clothes and accessories, whilst it does seem to be aimed at a young generation the choices available are vast and may accommodate for many. I've been many times with friends and on my own, each time the staff have been extremely helpful. A great place to shop and the cafe offers a great place to... More

Great quirky place to find non high street items. Lots of independent retailers with lots of different products. So many floors to explore of you don't go around at least twice you will have missed something!

Very good place to shop especially for vintage things! It is very different - it has all independent shops & boutiques selling absolutely everything from dark gothic clothing to vintage to beading to tutus! Worth checking out. The place is massive and like a maze!

Feels like there's less here than there used to be five or six years ago. However, there's a great bead shop, where you can get all kinds of bits and bobs if you like crafting (which I do). Lots of clothes if you like something a bit unusual.

I was visiting Manchester for a few days and discovered this place by accident. I wish I had more time to explore it. Eclectic mix of shops - quite interesting. Would recommend it as a worthwhile place to spend an interesting afternoon. I did have time to pick up some fun t shirts.

Afflecks is a fantastic mix of vintage, quirky and individually styled independent stalls/shops. It's a wonderful warren filled with creative art, clothing, gifts and smondries. Ideal if one is looking for a more personalised outfit, present or a organic experience of shopping away from the mass consumer centre of high street chains.
