This should be a great place for shopping at Manchester. The street is busy and with a lot of brands.

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.

Walked from Piccadilly Station to the happening part of the city on a Friday evening. Despite the rain, I was pleased to see the jolly (not rowdy) crowd, the Christmas market selling clothing, trinkets and foodstuff as well as the various decorations by stores along...More

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”.

Market Street is a very busy, lively street in the heart of the City Centre. Get in amongst the hustle and bustle and enjoy all that’s going on.

In short you see life in this street. The well heeled, the down trodden and Mr & Mrs average. A great choice of shops and store and wall to wall to wall busking and music. You must stop and watch some of the acts, some...More

The largest stores such as Debenhams and Primark are at its Piccadilly Gardens end; TK Maxx and an entrance to the vast Arndale Centre in the middle; smaller stores at the end. Whilst the stores themselves are welcoming, the street itself is nondescript and fairly...More

One of the buzziest streets in central Manchester, this street encapsulates the spirit of Manchester's shopping-malls. Loads to shop along the street, and especially good for window-shopping as there is a lot on display. There are often street performers and crowd watching too. Wonderful atmosphere...More

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
