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

I am at the moment on sticks, the drivers helped me in and out, pulled nearer curbs to make things easier and let me take my time.

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

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
