Shop ‘til you drop in Manchester’s city centre

Manchester City Centre, Greater Manchester

With something to suit all tastes, Manchester has become a haven for those looking for a touch of retail therapy.

Home to an eclectic mix of independent shops, Manchester’s Northern Quarter offers a distinctive shopping experience. Rummage for a rare vinyl at one of the independent music stores or pay a visit to the renowned “emporium of eclecticism”, Affleck’s to pick up a bargain vintage buy.

Take a pit stop at Dive Bar for a bite to eat and a refreshing gin and tonic, before continuing on towards Manchester’s buzzing Market Street.

Pop into the Arndale shopping centre and snap up a bargain at one of the many high-street retailers or take a short stroll to Spinningfields – one of the city’s most vibrant areas, and a thriving hub for rest, work and play. Take a peak in the up-market shops, or head straight to Fazenda to taste some of Manchester’s finest Brazilian cuisine.

If you still haven’t found what you’re looking for, there’s always the opportunity for late night shopping at the Trafford Centre.

Finally, put your feet up and relax at the five-star Lowry Hotel where Salford meets Manchester on the banks of the River Irwell, and rejuvenate ahead of another action-packed day of shopping, dining and exploring.
