I personally would prefer Altrincham to the centre of Manchester... far more personal and friendly Highly recommend this little Gem, sure you will love this beautiful town!
There's plenty to see and do at the market, as well as the surrounding shops, cafe bars, cinemas and restaurants, making Altrincham market a place worth visiting.

Yet another old Manchester library worth a visit
Great building but maybe not for everyone as it is a fully functional library not a pure tourist attraction as such.
#18 of 225 Shopping in Greater Manchester
Very nice craft jewelery and my favorite place was "Ink Inc" by the artist Laura Fray who has a lovely small shop with many illustrations and its ideal for lovely gifts
A visit is well worth the effort as it is within easy reach of the tea and coffee shops of the Northern Quarter.
