Yes, is another market street. The same brands. The same stores. The same noise. Well. Nothing really new to enjoy. Any picture will be similar to almost any other market place in the western world. Just that.

Nice pedestrianized street with lots of chain and big name stores. Easy access to Arndale centre and its food court. As expected it can get very crowded at peak time - weekends etc. Would be better if there wasn't so many sales people or reps trying to stop you!

Street performers and artists. Cultural music and craft. There are also the occasional buscars. It is the main thoroughfare to the various wonderful shops... More

It's my worst nightmare as there are salesman on every corner asking you questions, there are just too may people rushing to where they need to be. There are trams coming from every direction, there is a smell of food, weed, urine and very strong perfume on the street. It's just horrible!

The great thing about Market street is that you can buy virtually anything within a very short distance. I love to visit and see the various buskers and street entertainers there.

Nearly always busy lined the the well known shops and stores and provides access to the Arndale Centre. Like most city centres its users vary from the city gents to the chavs and it has its beggers, street sellers and buskers (some of them are surprisingly good). One can get accosted by charity sellars but they are not too bothersome.... More
