Shopping in Manchester
The city is an ideal spot for both the fashion-conscious and shoppers serious about savings. Visit Selfridges and Harvey Nicholls for the latest designer labels or take a trip to Cross Street where you’ll find independent boutiques specialising in clothes and accessories.
The Arndale is an indoor shopping centre featuring major fashion brands, an extensive food court and free wifi throughout.

Visit Affleck’s Palace in the Northern Quarter for vinyl, posters and comics.
Connections to TV
Manchester is home to a busy media hub, including offices and studios associated with two major television channels. Granada Television produces a range of classic telly here, from soap favourite Coronation Street to the gritty drama Prime Suspect, and offers seasonal tours of the studio, as well as tickets to live-audience shows including stand-up with Peter Key, Harry Hill and Caroline Aherne.
BBC TV recently relocated leading shows including Blue Peter, Dragon’s Den and Match Of The Day. Tours and studio tickets are available throughout the year.
Manchester is noted for its excellent theatres. Larger venues include the Manchester Opera House, a commercial theatre that often plays host to touring West End shows, the Palace Theatre, and the Royal Exchange Theatre, a small producing theatre in the former Cotton Exchange.
The Lowry also features two theatres running crowd-pleasing musicals including Fame, Stompand Happy Days as well as top comedy nights; previous shows include stand-ups Richard Herring, Russell Kane and Lee Hurst.

Renowned for its musical heritage, Manchester is the birth-place of Factory Records and the legendary Haçienda. Rising to fame in the 80s and 90s, ‘Madchester’ gave us The Smiths, the Stone Roses and New Order to name a few.
Visit one of the oldest and most diverse venues is the Band on the Wall, a live music venue in the Northern Quarter district of the city. Built in the 1860s as the flagship pub of a local brewery, it was originally called the George & Dragon. It got its nickname in the late 1920s or early 1930s from the stage high on the back wall. Today it remains a popular venue for jazz and blues acts.
Live music fans should check out The Albert Hall, an A Grade II listed Wesleyan chapel. The grand and ornate chapel has been restored into a stunning purpose-built music hall and is set to become one of the most atmospheric music and events venues in the UK.
