Beautiful building, one of the best Arcades I’ve have ever seen. Beautiful wrought iron hand railings going up 3 floors, with stunning glass roof. Well worth going in just to see the design of the Victorians.

This place has a unique architectural structure, which adds to its beauty. But it's rather small & has few shops in addition to a cafe. Worth passing by.

I have always loved this arcade, it's located off St Anne's square or deansgate and is just a gorgeous Building. Inside there is a barber's shop,coffee houses,hair salon and clothing apparel. It's definetly worth seeing..

Always enjoy a visit to Barton Arcade to admire the ornate architecture, I spend more time looking up rather than at the shop fronts. Used to be a regular visitor to the much missed Sportspages, Spent many an hour (& ££'s) in there.
