This is a dirty, congested street with beggers in each door way. Bring some spare change as you may need it. Plenty of shops about and the Arndale Centre isn't too bad . Stay away from Piccadilly Gardens has unsavory people hanging about it. People friendly and will help if they can

Might have been a beacon of activity back in the days now just a high street with banks and shops except for a small market area on the back which is part of arndale centre with a fish monger butcher veg guy and eating area but nothing special or historic sad

If you want to get a taste what is like to be in a Manchester just get on Market street. It is always full of life and action. There are lots of shops and other interesting things and you can always enjoy your cup of coffee in some popular caffes.

We spent some days for Christmas and we passed along this street daily. Thousands of buyers flood the area as it is full of all kinds of shops including Arndale, Primemark and many more. It's also interesting to spot some street performers showing their art to everybody for some coins

We we visited it was if full Christmas Market mode. Lost of things to see and eat. The street has lots of "All year round" shops too. If it gets too wet you can also pop into the Arndale Centre which runs along one side of it.
