I have visited this place since the 80s. I have loved it over the years and have seen it changing - not for the better. I visited two days ago and it was so sad. Not exciting, not cutting edge, not fun, not quirky, not...More

If you have never been to Afflecks you will be surprised at the gorgeous shops, wall art and quirky layout. The record shop on the top floor is fantastic. I never leave here without a bag full of goodies!

Afflecks is the most interesting bunch of shops in the world! Loads of different independent stalls/shops crammed in over three or four floors. If you've not been before you're in for a real treat!

First time visit, and what can i say. We will absolutely be back. So many independant traders across 4 floors. So much too see and take in. Everyone really needs visit, so what you waiting for do it!!

Some great vintage stuff in here. You can get lost in the place as it's 3 floors of quirky wonder. One of the must-go-to places in Manchester.

So much to look at and if like me you are of senior years then you will find lots to jog your memories of times gone by, fashion, jewellery, house hold items, posters, military and that little thing you wont find anywhere else.

Hi, Large multi storey car park right opposite. Plenty of parking in the general area, but the main NCP type car parks are expensive

They do not have an online price list unfortunately. But if you let me know what piercings that you would like prices for I will find out and let you know. Thanks
