Full of loads of alternative to vintage to plain funny clothes shops and more jewellery, piercings and stuff than you can shake two sticks at. Also check out the cereal cafe on the 2nd floor they have everything in there including edible chocolate bowls and that ain't no typo my friend. Good food and you just have to go and... More

Follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and visit this curious collection of couture & collectables. Afflecks has been going for around 20 years (or so it seems) and deserves the title of the best alternative department store. Pop in. Have a browse and support local independent retailers

If you are looking for vintage or alternative fashion this is the place to go. It's full of loads of great independent shops selling items you will never find on the high street. If that's your thing then you really must come and explore.

Affleck's is a great place for all the family it has a wide variety of alternative shops as well as American candy store and retro gaming store. If you are the type of person to like any of these then this place is for you. I have always had a keen interest in piercings tattoos and everything alternative.

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.
