Fodor's Review

Throughout the city's commercial heyday, the most important building was the cotton market. Built with Victorian exuberance in 1874, the existing structure accommodated 7,000 traders. The giant glass-dome roof was restored after a 1996 IRA bombing. Visit to see the lunar module–inspired Royal Exchange Theatre, have a drink in the café, and browse the crafts shop or the clothes outlets in the arcade.
