Jewellery, shirts, handbags, clothes, food... you name it, they have it. Canal Street is the perfect place for people who want to try out what it feels like to haggle for the price of the goods (it is expected here, so do not be surprised when the vendors state a much bigger price than you are willing to pay). You will not walk out without buying something you never knew you needed. In case you want to buy souvenirs for your friends and family, you should buy them here, as they usually end up being much cheaper than in regular stores.
Canal Street got its name because this place used to be a frequent victim of floods and leaks of sewage, until a canal was built to take in all the excess water. The canal was not sufficient, and the city started growing over it.
This street is easily accessible from various metro stations and bus stops.
