Grainger Market is brilliant - you can get anything there and the stalls are really good value. The Central Arcade is gorgeous with lovely mosaic floor, stunning tile work and glass and iron roof.

Grainger Town has lots of stores that sell a huge variety of items, from clothing to books and old records. I haven't tried the food, but it sure did look good.

An architectural treat. A great area to stroll around and admire some of the best townscape of any British City. The Grainger Market, with its original Marks and Spencer Penny Bazaar is well worth a visit.
