Had a little day trip up to Manchester to see the Christmas Markets and the city centre. The Arndale Centre is a very good experience. Although it was busy in the Christmas season, it wasn't so packed that you couldn't walk around. (Unlike Birmingham's Bull Ring, which is awful!) It's easy to get to from Piccadilly Station if you're visiting... More

We came to Manchester to visit the Arndale Centre to do some Christmas shopping. The market near the Town Hall was wonderful - some nice gifts at less than extortionate prices - and this made an ideal start to our visit. The Arndale Centre by comparison was a bit of a disappointment. It's ok - and certainly worth a look... More

There are loads and loads of shops in the Arndale Centre. It's right in the centre of Manchester and the trams and buses go past so you should have no trouble finding it. There are huge department stores and smaller stores as well with price points for every wallet. The only minor criticism I would have is that there are... More

Visited a few days ago and to be completely honest it is a shoppers paradise. There is something for everyone. It is perfect for those wanting to visit and look around many of the famous name shops and pick up that something special. However, I'm not one of those people. I'm very definitely the Victor Meldrew of shopping at a... More

Very good variety of food. Chinese? Tick. Burgers? Tick. Fish&chips? Tick. Whatever you want, you can get it there. Prices are moderate, just don't expect fancy.

Very enjoyable, easy to walk around , good selection of shops and restaurants. The only negative thing is the very expensive car parking ( £18 for 4 hours) Go on the train.

We spend long shopping time here on Arndale Centre. It is busy place with varieties of different shopping item. The place is in good location which is closer to Market Street tram stop. I am being there for 8yrs whenever I need some shopping items.

A great shopping centre, loads of options for all tastes from high street to unknowns. It's by far the busiest shopping centre I've ever known. Crazy busy. Food outlets, market type shops, high street chains means you can spend all day here and cover everything you need if you can handle the crowds.
