“Litter...everywhere!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

I recently stayed in Manchester and walked through the area to Piccadilly Gardens. The litter was terrible, even in the middle of the day when you would think the litter men would have been busy picking it up. By late evening it was even worse!

But what makes me so sad is that the people who live and visit this city have no community spirit and feel comfortable dropping the litter in the first place!

“alienating concrete”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

avoid this place, really dirty with litter and like all of Manchester hardly any litter bins, worst is in the evening, shame I can't think of anything positive to say about it. Why does a square have to be filled with all this crap what happened to open space, then at least you can put events on. Clearly a badly managed city.

“Gardens? What?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Bland, soul-less inner city nothingness.Green, growing things would make it something to enjoy rather than just hurry through. However, if you like concrete....
