Since it was during Christmas, there were more shops lined up on the street like Kiosk way, and so many different things you can look at. Some offers hot chocolate with a hint of alcohol, and we tried one with Bailey which was absolutely delicious.

During the Christmas period this street gets incredibly busy. With the market going on it becomes more interesting, when making your way to the Arndale Centre. It is just a shame that like all major cities there are so many homeless & rough sleepers.

Very well laid out and a pleasant, relaxed experience, compared to Albert Square. Plenty of space to walk around and browse the stalls. Well worth a visit.

This is probably the busiest street in Manchester & along it you will find nearly every store you could wish for. As we were in Manchester in December it was as you can imagine very,very busy and not really for my “cup of tea”.

Hi Jean-Marc, I don't know either. Knowing the council you probably do! Like David I suggest you use the city council website. Good luck Patchycat
