- 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 & Spencerstore.
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 Nextstore, The Printworks, and a number of pubs. The Triangle has a BBC Big Screentelevision attached to it. Harvey Nicholsis also nearby.
The Manchester Wheel
Since 2004 there has been a temporary
Ferris wheelin 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.
