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.

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

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.
