Slightly better than High Streets in a lot of cities. Manchester has several pedestrianised shopping areas that are more pleasant. However, the usual collection of High Street... read more

Market street leads directly to the Arndale Centre and the centre of town. It is flanked by a large variety of shops, banks as well as occasional food stalls. Considering the Arndale is right next to it, the street itself is nothing special if shopping is your thing. This street comes alive during Christmas were it forms part of the... More

Walked thru here last night. Wow, lots of shady people hanging around the square. Could smell Marijuana at a few corners. No a place I felt comfortable at with kids.

Market Street Manchester is basically the center of the city. We visited Market Street when we were in Manchester as the main shopping area was on Market Street and its surrounding area. All the major shops are located here; from Primark, Marks & Spencer, Selfridges, BHS etc. We liked the little town square near the Manchester Eye. There is a... More

Slightly better than High Streets in a lot of cities. Manchester has several pedestrianised shopping areas that are more pleasant. However, the usual collection of High Street stores are there, along with street sellers and entertainers. There is a Metrolink stop at the top of Market Street (outside Primark/Debenhams) which is helpful if you have a lot to carry!

On Market St. you will find your main shops that you would find on any other high street in the UK, with the most popular being Primark, this gets uncomfortably busy. There are shops such as BHS, M&S, Debenhams, T.K. Maxx, phone and music shops etc. Probably the only thing that makes market street stand out is the atmosphere, its... More
