I'd describe Afflecks as Manchester's answer to Camden Market, always visit when my sister comes to visit as she is into alternative fashions, american confectionery, beads, etc etc. This place has so much to look at and is visually very busy. There is something new to see everywhere you look. I'll be honest I usually just buy a few sweets... More

I remember going in Afflecks Palace so much in my teenage years and my early twenties. Getting piercings. Buying clothes and gifts and hunting through the alternative marketplaces and finding new things I wanted to buy. Affleck's has a place in my heart now for the memories I have of it, but even-so, it's still a great experience. The mixtuere... More

Affleck's Palace has long since been the coolest place to visit in the coolest quarter of the coolest city. So you wouldn't think it was possible to raise the bar. But they have. With ice cream! It's pretty yummy but adds an element of adventure too. A toasted brioche stuffed with ice cream? While that may seem like a clever... More

To be honest, I have expected much more of this shopping mall. It was not as alternative as I hoped it will be. I visited on two separate occasions (2011, 2014) and I did not change my mind about the place. I'd say, if you have the choice, you are better off at Camden for alternative clothes and decor than...

I am sorry to hear that we failed to impress you Steffi, it is always worth revisiting as we do tend to change with new traders and retail offerings being introduced regularly. A new alternative business Dark Light Gothic is opening up a large unit on the 3rd floor very soon. Hopefully you will visit us again next time you... More

I loved Afflecks, I visited it all 3 days I was in Manchester, it was that good. There is something for everyone and everyone working there is so lovely. It's four floors of independent shops, each with everything to offer. I especially loved ginger's where I had probably the best milskshake I'd ever had, all though it was quite expensive,... More

Strawberri Peach trades within Afflecks and offers a bespoke dress making service. At the time the prom dress was collected the dress was tried on by the customer who then left the shop happy with the dress. The customer then decided that she no longer liked the dress for what ever reason that might have been and wanted a refund.... More
