Exchange Square (Manchester)


Exchange Square (Manchester)

Exchange Square is located in the English city of Manchester. The square was heavily redeveloped after the IRA bombing of the city centre in 1996. This reconstruction included the moving of two pubs to make room for the new Marks & Spencer store.

Today the square is a major upscale shopping area including a branch of Selfridges, the upmarket shopping centre The Triangle, a new entrance to the Manchester Arndale, including the world's largest Next store, The Printworks, and a number of pubs. The Triangle has a BBC Big Screen television attached to it. Harvey Nichols is also nearby.

The Manchester Wheel

Since 2004 there has been a temporary Ferris wheel in the south-west of the square over the winter months. In May 2007, it was re-installed and will be replaced in spring 2008 with a larger wheel that will be 80m high and supplied by World Tourist Attractions Ltd.
