The city council with their potty parking policies and policing, coupled with huge business rates have killed this once popular up market shopping street. Theres not much there these days.

Becoming something of a ghost street - too many top quality shops moving out, presumably because the rents are too high and the fact that they are having to compete with the Trafford Centre. This is such a pity as King Street has always been renowned for the 'class' of shop

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