I don't think you can see the true nature of any city without exploring streets like this that may be regarded as 'off the beaten track'...and as with most cities, areas like Magdalen Street host many independent businesses and traders, and can sometimes offer some interesting shopping and culture.
The area may be slightly 'run down' in parts, but it is busy, and in my opinion, is not as potentially dangerous as some like to profess it is!
Best for vintage shoppers and second-hand bargain hunters and charity shop shoppers. Also good for picking up everyday essentials.
A good few car parks around and some limited free parking all along the street too.
Travel the whole length of the street (the 'flyover' /Anglia Square section is just the middle) to see the whole range of eclectic shops and services.
