Spent two days in Manchester & both days went to the Arndale Centre for shopping. Everything under 1roof that you need, the Disney Store being my favourite 😍 We still didn't get to visit all the shops. Definitely a must if planning a shopping trip 😊

The Arndale centre was a great place to do our shopping while in Manchester. I don't think I have EVER been to such a big shopping centre like it before. My wife and teenage daughter were in their heaven and if they had their way we would of been there 24 hours a day! I liked it because it was... More

We have been to this shopping center three times during our stay in Manchester. We have found it to be the core shopping place for our holiday, as there's so much available... be it video games, clothes, house decorations and restaurants. Luckily we were visiting during sales (unexpectedly!) so we made a few great purchases which we took home with... More

This shopping center is WONDERFUL!!!!! The shops in it are just the best (H&M, Zara,.....) There's even a Hollister (went mental for like 9 mins). It was just a pleasure to wonder around and embracing the shopping experience here :) Plus it's near the MetroLink Market Street and Piccadilly Gardens stations :)

You have a wide variety of shops in the Arndale from Selfridges to Game. You can find what you need in most cases which is good. There is also a food court which has alot of different food outlets like KFC and McDonalds it also has the mostly american outlet 'Taco Bell' which is great for both American tourists but... More

All of the popular shops you could hope for, but not a lot with a huge amount of personality. If you fancy some good food, steer clear of the greasy food court on te third floor and head to the market on the second floor, for a good, well priced selection of food that includes Indian, Mexican and Thai options...

All the shopping chains you know under one roof, very busy and bustling. Loads of places to eat too but I always prefer to eat outside the centre as it's a bit too busy and open when your sitting down. Toilets leave a lot to be desired not enough, long queues, quite dirty n smelly, as are most of the... More

There is not alot in the centre itself really, some chain stores which are okay but it does back onto Selfridges and Zara but it is very well placed, within walking distance of the Piccadily train station and part of a very vibrant town centre with lots and lots of places to eat and shop

The Arndale centres only appeal is in making the Trafford Centre look like an enjoyable experience. It's noisy and actually a little bit smelly and the lighting is dim and ill considered. It also feels a teeny bit unsafe Avoid if at all possible

Loved the huge Superdry store, the nice interior and the overwhelming amount of shops. You won't be able to see the whole center in one day, it's huge!
