Barton Arcade

Home to some of Manchester's up and coming independent retailers, this hidden shopping gem is worth a visit.

Barton Arcade in Deansgate, Manchester was built in 1871. This beautiful Victorian structure of iron and glass was extensively restored in the 1980s and now houses exclusive shops, and a number of office suites.

The original shop fronts have disappeared, as has the original decorative tiled floor, but Barton Arcade remains a beautifully restored piece of Victorian architecture.
