This is a street I try and avoid for the most part. Although it is full of popular shops it just gets so busy as to be unbearable at times. The current circumstances mean it is quite a lot quieter and a more pleasant place as a result. Not so many charlatans trying to part you from your money and you can actually move around it in reasonable comfort. When and if things get back to normal I’m sure it will get busy again but, for the meantime, enjoy a quieter version!

If you want to feel the heart of our city and walk with the people of our city then Market Street is for you. Market Street is a pedestrianised area where you will see buskers of all types, from Bob Marley’s reggae to violin concertos. There are street artists who dance, play magic and act as ‘statues’ who jump out at you. There are street sellers who eagerly pack up their case when the police pass by, podiums for religious groups to tell you why you should join them and then there you will see workers dashing for their lunch alongside shoppers from all over the world. It is a hustle and bustle of the busy human race. Market Street and Market Place (Market Place is the top end of Market Street near M&S)is the hub of our city, connecting Piccadilly Gardens (where you will find the fountains and market stalls) to Deansgate (where you will find endless bars and restaurants). Either side of Market Street is St Anne’s Square, the Royal Exchange and Spring Gardens versus the Arndale and Exchange Square. Market Street houses one of the largest Primark Stores in the world, opposite a large Debenhams. There are coffee shops, banks and building societies, clothes shops, health shops and so much more, alongside three separate entries to the Arndale which is our lovely indoor shopping centre. Manchester has so much to offer and Market Street is a way to get there. 🐝 ❤️🐝

Absolutely not something you need to visit. Just an ordinary shopping street. You can visit Arndale, but that’s about it.

I normally avoid Market Street and walk parallel down King Street but I was keen to pop into TK Maxx as this is one of their best stores. With the tram stop and Primark at the top end, it's all a bit chaotic. Rough sleepers and beggars, clipboard-wielding charity fundraisers and some really noisy street performers. They're not all just noisy, a fella in a wheelchair with his guitar was playing a decent tune and I donated, good luck to him. The Reggae guy, awful. Arndale was quite impressive, Market Street has it's uses.

I can not see anything special about this street. Busy and lots of trash. Nothing interesting for me.
