“Typical City centre shopping street.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

They could do so much more, but it does what it says on the tin. Plenty of shops with the Arndale shopping centre too, good direct link from the Piccadilly through to Deansgate were you can just watch the city pass by!

“My home city”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Living abroad, I love visiting Market Street when I'm back at home... every shove I get, every elbow to the ribs or every person in my way is a pleasure on the hustle and bustle of this busy shopping street :p It's not one of the prettiest streets, but it does its job - it's a street for SHOPPING! :D

“Getting like Barcelona!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Love the ambiance! Reminds me more and more of Barcelona Les Rambles. Street acts, people statues and sellers galore! What a crush! Hurry up Primark and get your refurb done as it is surreal to queque to walk down the street!

“Avoid Street Chuggers!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Good selection of shops and buskers but avoid the street chuggers! (Street fundraising consists of various ways of asking for donations on behalf of a charity). These are plenty full from one end to the next. Some often beung quite rude and stop you in your tracks.
Very busy on a weekend.
Plenty of transport near by.
The arndale is best for shopping.

“Very busy shopping area”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Market Street is one of the main shopping areas in Manchester. You will find Primark, Boots, Top Man to name a few. It is right in the centre of town.
