Shopping

“My favourite place to go in Manchester is the Craft and Design Centre, followed by a big slice of cake and a brew at Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter. It’s so inspiring – lots of talented local artists in such a beautiful building.”

Ever wonder where Mancuanians get their unique street style? The Northern Quarter is home to the best independent, vintage and boutique shops, as well as Afflecks Palace, with four floors of alternative fashion. If vintage style is your thing, read our blog on the best places to find vintage fashion in Manchester. You can find all your high street favourites in Manchester Arndale centre, and designer labels in the city centre.

If you fancy getting out of the city, you can catch the bus to the Trafford Centre and spend the day shopping, bowling, watching a film, and of course, eating your lunch in the gloriously kitsch Titanic-themed food court.
