We came to Afflecks Palace from Nottingham when it came to prom dress shopping as we had been before and knew we would find something unique. Right from the start we received excellent service, my daughter who is quite shy was put at ease when being measured, she was advised regarding her style and shape and a dress was adapted... More

Before I start this review, I want to make it clear that this review is only applied to strawberri peach, as I've found the rest of afflecks satisfying in the past. I came to strawberri peach to fullfill my dream prom dress, little did I know it was going to be a disaster. After reading some online reviews about the... More

Always been the place, to find something you cannot find anywhere else, you can spend hours going through all the small shops over loads of floors, food is good in thier as well. If you want expensive stuff go to selfridges, here thier is something for everyone's pocket and as the shop owners are normally working, great customer service.

Afflecks is a huge, alternative, shopping centre with a bit of something for everybody - especially if you like things a little different. There is a huge array of clothing shops for all kinds - punk, goth, vintage... even old military clothes. Those listed doesn't even begin to cover the full variety, however - you'd have to check it out... More

If you think that all shopping centres look the same then this one will prove you wrong. Three floors of very different shops and stalls. We normally come here when we need fancy dress stuff from the shop on the third floor, and always end up with a range of stuff we didn't come in for. The 3rd floor fancy... More

It's brilliant!! There literally is something for anyone....given my love for rock music and that sort of culture it's a great place to go! It's always advertising bands that are playing in the city and there is always a treasure to find amongst the shops! Been so many times now and the people are just lovely they literally accept you...

Well if your a new comer to Manchester then chances are you may not have heard of this alternative cave of wonders. Quite simply Afflecks is a four storey shopping centre for those of us who get sick and tired of what the mainstream have to offer. This is a place that sticks its tongue out to everything normal, so... More
