Have always loved this street for it's variety of shops (ManCity shop!) and vibe. Street vendor selling fruit and veg outside the Barclay's, and lots of energy and vibe on this noon hour in mid March!

If you need to visit a chain shop on the street, then try and do it quickly and in the morning before the place becomes overrun with undesirables. If you actually look at some of the buildings, the architecture is quite nice. It just is not looked after well and the Arndale is revolting. Just to repeat the message, unless... More

So here is where you find the third division shops. Usually busy but not appealing unless you want that kind of shopping or want to find the entrance to The Arndale.

If you want to visit a nice, clean safe city then don't go to Manchester it's a big rubbish dump. Market street is full of down and outs and beggars, drunks and drug addicts. Travel further afield and it's no better. All the streets are paved in rubbish and fly tipping is rife. Manchester people must like to live in... More

What a horrible place this is. It is full of beggars, alcoholics, hawkers who must be trading illegally. This street is one of the 1st things a tourist will see and what a embarrassing 1st impression it must be. I'd love to know what the council leaders think of this? This street needs to be cleared of all these people... More

If you are a shopping fanatic, go to Market street while in Manchester. It all happens here, shops, restaurants, cafes and....pick pockets !! Yes, just as being in any big shopping street in big cities, you have to keep a close eye on your wallets and purses. I always tend to keep my back pockets free in such areas......just a... More

Yes, it's noisy and it gets very crowded, but that's because there is so much to see. In all cities you get the pickpockets and nuisances, but that is a fact. It's fun, bustling, busy and as always in every city I have been in both UK and abroad, you look after your personal belongings. Enjoy!

As already mention Market Street is not an attraction. It is the main shopping street in the city and where most people will end up. If you like to shop then you will be in heaven once you hit market street! Every shop you could want is here and if it not on the street itself just go into the... More
