Sports, leisure & the Arts George Street Conservation Area


George Street conservation area is located in the heart of Manchester city centre and is bounded by Mosley Street, Charlotte Street, Portland Street, Oxford Street, George Street and Dickinson Street. The area was designated in June 1985 and effectively consolidated several conservation areas by linking those of Whitworth Street, St Peter's Square, Albert Square and Upper King Street.

It is principally a busy commercial district but the range of uses has recently expanded to include shops, restaurants, banks and housing. However, the area is best known as the location of Manchester's China Town.
