A lovely place to do your shopping, warm and cosy in winter and cool in summer, nice flat surfaces to walk on, all under one roof so you wont be getting wet or blow away with the Wigan weather

Somethings you never forget Dennis. Keep to the left, and we did as we were told.

The Arcade always looks very spruce and shining.

If ever there is a waste of space it is the Grand Arcade.
