I used to work near here so spent a fair bit of time walking up and down in the late 80s and early 90s. Lots has changed but there is also a reassuring familiarity about it.

It’s never been the poshest part of town but it is full of character. Lots of independent shops, pubs full of characters and a great selection of restaurants that break the mould a little bit.

There used to be shops and warehouses here dealing in textiles some years ago. Now there are offices, vintage shops, pubs and bars.

The garment warehouses have shifted, offices have taken over.

I used to visit to look for old CDs one upon a time, now you can look for vinyl since they came back in fashion.

Look a little carefully and you will see buildings modelled on New York. Captain America: The First Avenger was shot here.

Running through the heart of the Northern Quarter, Oldham Street is the opposite of Market Street, in a good way.

When I was at school, Piccadilly Records was the place to get your concert tickets and today it's a great place to seek out vinyl. There's a big Carhartt and another across the road. The cafés and bars are the highlight, Night and Day is very popular, I had a really good coffee and cake at The Fig and Sparrow. Gullivers (music and comedy) and Matt and Phred's (Jazz) are well known venues.

The area can seem a bit run down in the cold light of day, with tagging on the buildings etc but it's definitely well worth visiting.

I had seen that Oldham Street was a destination worth looking at after seeing it being reviewed on here. It’s a long long road with numerous pieces of interesting street art, worth a look if you have the time,

Oldham Street affords a fascinating stroll along a mix of trendy bars and restaurants, small boutique shops, and yawning gaps where shops or even buildings used to be. The further one gets from Piccadilly Gardens the more decrepit it becomes with an entire burnt out building followed by a large bomb site. And yet at the other end it also features dining venues such as Crafty Pig and coffee bars such as the Fig & Sparrow of the utmost trendiness. But almost opposite these is a downmarket fish and chips shop with much of the exterior lettering especially for the words ‘fresh’ and ‘produce’ falling into the pavement. Midway outside a Cass Art shop Oldham
Street demonstrates it has more than its fair share of down and outs. Yet this colourful street is itself both up and down but certainly not out.

Oldham St and the area around have many older pubs. A little bit of history and nostalgia . Some very fine beers and ales.

Visited Oldham for a leisure trip just to find out the weather to be this bad.
Since Oldham is at a higher level than Manchester city centre, you will find this place to be cooler than other surrounding areas. Oldham is famous for its theatrical advances than leisure and cultural tour. Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laura used to perform there in the 20th century.

Lots of edgy shops on this street, don't be put off that it looks run down, it's a cool place to go for a wander. I like to browse the music stores that have a good selection of vinyl.
A few vintage shops as well as a bar that serves ales from a local brewery. Whats not to like.
