“Typical shopping street with ubiquitous shops”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

The one street in Manc which we try to avoid. A homogenized parade of shops such that you could be anywhere in Britain. There's a horrible first floor 'food court' casting a shadow (literally and metaphorically) at Cross Street end. Thank goodness the stinking burger bar is no longer there.

Reviewed 31 May 2012

Some days are better than others always a busy place, dont like being hassled for charity donations and people constantly stopping you for surveys, shops and cafes are good

Reviewed 29 May 2012

As long as you can dodge the sales people trying to get you on talk talk or switch internet providers, there are some genuine class acts down here, from footballers to jugglers to bands its great to see whats just popped up

“get me out of here!”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

Wall to wall charity vultures.. I was zigzaging away trying to avoid these people who won't take no for an answer! I already give to charity and even the ones I told I was already donating were trying to squeeze more out of me...

“Fun”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

Market street is the main street in manchester and therefore fun. It could be compared to Oxford street in London, however it is less busy. There are a lot of shops for everyones' taste and it's always nice to walk up and down when there are less people. On the weekends it gets rather busy
