This was our First time in Manchester and although I had read other reviews, I was surprised when my wife and I visited. We spent a good while meandering through the floors, never quite knowing where we were and what the next stall would offer. There is a wide selection of pre-owned clothing as well as new, jewellery a plenty,... More

I always visit Afflecks when visiting Manchester, you could lose yourself in the building for hours if your not careful. It is full of quirky shops, retro gear, rock memorabilia, clothes, gifts, art, tattoos, cafes, music, sweet shops and anything else you can think of. Prices vary in each shop but you will be guaranteed to find something unique and... More

Called in to Afflecks Palace yesterday. I hadn't been for many years. (I used to take my boys there when they were young.) It has really been smartened up. Some people may not appreciate it but my friends and I did. Loads of retro cloths and 50's 'stuff' to buy. Lots of ribbons and crafty things. 2 very nice café's.... More

Busier than usual during Halloween time but bustling and always fun. Gingers Coffee Shop, whilst good, needs more than one person or else it's a wee wait.

This place is a fun place to go with friends. Would recommend for kids 13+ though. Some favourite shops include a retro games store, a poster shop, and American candy store. This place is best for ages 15-25 but can be fun for other ages. 10/10 would go again.

We were visiting Manchester and it was absolutely chucking it down with rain (nothing new there?) I was trying to find somewhere dry when I walked down a side street and saw what I thought was Aflecks Palace I had visited many years ago, Luckily it was! Just as I remembered it, quirky interesting, an arty change from the monotony... More

I love afflecks. A great range of independent traders offering vintage and goth clothing, jewellery, records, a sweet store, cafe and even a massage to relieve those aching muscles. A pleasant change from the bland High Street stores with friendly stall holders. Definitely worth a visit

For me the coolest place in Manchester for people who enjoy good music and quirky fashion and even retro gaming memorabilia, took me back to my childhood, a must see for anybody visiting from far or near
