Pass through here every day on my way to work - busy in the mornings and quite free flowing too - this route from the Renaissance hotel takes you to Piccadilly station.

love shopping in manchester so much choice from designer labels to bargain buys. You can spend the day shopping and then dine out saving you the washing up.

The deteriorating street bombarded with Beggars, Protestors and Cold Sellers makes the experience very unpleasant at times. Also the speed of Cyclists can become dangerous.

Market Street is in the middle of the city centre. There are almost always musicians performing. It is right next to the Arndale shopping centre. It's a very busy street that is an okay attraction, but it's just worth walking through once or so. There isn't loads to see here.

Loads of good shops. Loads of people mid evening making a good atmosphere. Well worth a stroll. Lots of bars & restaurant within easy reach.

Many shops, ambiance is okay but most of all: great street artists. Street itself is not really significant, but it is does the job.

My advice would be to avoid this place at all times but especially weekends. It is chaotic, always packed with people and even though it is pedestrian it is a nightmare to walk up. True, it is the main shopping street but it is just too busy with charities, buskers, street traders. You name it, they are after your money!... More

Nice enough to walk around if you like shopping, but keep credit cards away you can spend lots of money. Average city street, the normal shops.
