Good to see this historic arcade brimming with life. Not the largest of its type but a lively place with a couple of good places to eat or snack and a great Spanish deli and tapas bar. Worth a look.

This is a most beautiful arcade from a time gone by period. They used to make really stylish shopping arcades. Good choice of shops in the arcade.

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..

... though that will only take you two-three minutes even when looking skywards. Linking St Annes square with Deansgate, it has a couple of designer shops plus a gourmet coffee shop.
