Very large shopping centre, containing all the high street names and more. Excellent places for a coffee, and a snack. There is also a food hall for more substantial meals.

I visited Manchester to go to a Manchester United match, so I wasn't really there to sight-see in the city - from what I could see there wasn't a whole lot to do in Manchester, and on a chilly morning the Arnedale Centre was a busy and interesting shopping centre/area to kill some time. Lots of popular High street stores for anyone looking for a fun browsing area.

I've visited the Arndale many times in the past, however haven't been for a couple of years. I did expect it to have had a bit of an update (new shops, better look)...however it looked the same as always, if not worse. To be honest it had a bit of a scruffy feel to it, if anyone knows the Crystal Peaks shopping centre in Sheffield its sort of like that but with actual restaurants (Nandos etc)

It has all the usual shops you would expect, however I think it needs to look better, a lick of paint, some sort of decoration....

My advice - if you want to go shopping in Manchester stick to the streets or head up to the Trafford Centre; much more choice and has a nicer feel to it :)

Boasting Harvy Nichols, Selfridges and an Apple Store, this is nice mall to wander through and shop. Food hall on top floor to boot all contained in modern glass and metal shell.
