A very busy street, loads of shops on all sides, lots of street sellers, evangelists from various religions, can be over busy and overwhelming. Has some decent street food sellers.

The very centre of Manchester; a must-visit especially with Arndale centre close by and the many high-end shops and eateries nearby. Truly enjoyed it, especially at Christmas time.

Recently visited Market Street in Manchester, UK. This street is lined on both sides with plenty of shopping, eateries, coffee bars, etc., as well as the Arndale Mall. If you are interested in shopping in Manchester, this is the place for you.
