  • Great use use of an old market space,well-renovated and designed. Mostly jewellery makers with some pottery and fine art. Nice little cafe.
  • Despite having lived in Manchester my whole life I've only just discovered this gem. A lovely little arcade full of craft booths with the artists making their wares onsite. There's a little cafe and the opportunity to learn new skills at one of the scheduled workshops.
  • Bit quiet these days but great to mooch around and the cafe in the middle is lovely.
  • Great creativity & great cake! Lots of gluten free options in cafe. Good place to buy special gifts.
  • Great centre with a range of artists studio's and shops which occasionally change over time. Several lovely jewelers and lots of other shops selling a variety of stuff. Lovely place for a unique gift. Also a nice cafe with good coffee. Be aware that the centre and cafe are open on a Sunday but most shops are closed.

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
