High end of Manchester

This is the connecting area to the high end shops within manchester. It's clean and tidy, and a good base to start shopping from

King Street used to be the place to shop. There are still some big names here but most have moved to Spinningfields.

All year-round, you have designer shops and right now the Christmas markets extend all the way down the centre of this street. Well worth a visit !

King Street Manchester is actually split and in three parts. From bottom to top there are some great eateries and shops. It used to be the case that the higher up King Street the better the provision. That is debatable so walk the full length and judge for yourself. Agent Provocateur at the top end is a favourite of mine.

This is a fantastic place right in the middle of the town! It is full of high end shops and around the corner from Selfridges, Harvey Nicks with a really good mix of things to buy. Everyone is super friendly and there are plenty of coffee houses and lunch places!

Really like this area of Manchester. You can stroll along without dodging cars, popping into designer close shops or gazing at expensive watches in the upmarket jewellers!

This posh street is full of designer boutiques and popular with footballers, WAG's and the glitterati. Great place to start your journey to financial ruin!!

Well I don't have much to say on King Street, might be one of the main streets of Manchester, and full of shops but in my humble opinion it seemed not so memorable, I consider it an ordinary shopping street that's it but anyway absolutely worth a visit.
