The shops have more variety now than they did 20 years ago, but the place has retained it's unique character. A must visit for all tourists! The cafe on the top floor... More

Plenty of shops, good place to come for alternative clothing and accessories, I have gotten all my piercings done there and all have healed up nicely the prices aren't too high and can even get anime stuff.

Afflecks Palace Manchester never fails to impress me. Its a bit shabby but its a great place to wander around. Whether you want to have a shop for something or just get out of the rain. It is full to the brim with quirky shops and stalls. I go here when I need a gift or need a new stash... More

I have always had a love of afflecks and it was the first place I thought of when I decided I wanted a new piercing. Unfortunately, the experience I had was not the best. The piercer in the studio was very unhelpful when I asked about the process and didn't give me any instructions on how to clean my particular... More

It must be 20 years since my last visit. We took our teen to get her take on it; she was delighted by the old school photo-booth. I'd flag up the friendliness of the stallholders > fun chats with the Fox Fairy and and a particularly warm exchange with Dan at Abacus: thanks for a beautiful addition to our semi-precious... More

An interesting array of boutique stalls and cafés. Most aimed at the teenage alternative market, but worth a browse for something different. Great 2nd hand record store on 3rd floor.

A great resurrection for an old department store just off Piccadilly Square. Love this place. First introduced in the 1970's when my sister was at Manchester Uni and my kids adored it 30 years later. If you like unique, non-high street alternative merchandise this is the place for you. Lots of independent sellers on 3 (or is it 4?) levels.... More

I love this place. It's full of things you don't find anywhere else all under one roof. Great for the alternative crowd & someone looking for something a little bit different.

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
