Afflecks Palace is one of the best hidden gems in Manchester. It has an array of great shops that will suit all your needs from fancy dress to retro gaming. Opened in 1982 it is best described as an eclectic mix of small boutiques. It is most certainly student friendly and everyone is approachable.

    I love Afflecks palace. I went here to get my ear pierced in first year and have been back a lot of times since.

    It has a different atmosphere to somewhere like the Arndale shopping centre because of its much more friendly atmosphere. I can literally walk around for hours and get my haircut then buy some fancy dress etc etc.

    Also, watch out for the themed nights that they have on at Halloween and the end of April. They are a good laugh.

    Overally I give Afflecks palace a 4 star. I love it but the only downside is that it could be bigger haha!

    My first visit was on Saturday 2nd June 2013..I found it fascinating with lots of great stuff to see and buy.

    My only grumble was climbing all those stairs why could’nt we use the Lifts. I will definately go back as there is so much more to see.
