Probably past its best, it used to be a prestigious area for shops and professional firms but many have now moved to Spinningfields.

Its a busy busy busy road full of shopping opportunities. I love the local independent wine bars that you can stop of at in between shops for some light bites of chilled wine. Downside is parking, its quite expensive in my opinion especially for street parking.

cool shopping street with some really very good architecture.Moreover, it is one of the most important thoroughfares of Manchester city centre, England. Formerly the centre of the north-west banking industry[when?] it has become progressively dominated by expensive shops.In addition easy to find park. worth visit
