Kingbee Records, 519 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, Manchester, M21 0UF – Visit Now

33 years old as of 2020, Chorlton’s Kingbee is one of the Mancunian suburbs’ most recognisable and popular record shops.

Run by the ever-present Les, the yellow-fronted shop on Wilbraham Road offers ‘all styles of music’ on vinyl and CD – from early rock’n’roll to Northern Soul, prog-rock to punk. Kingbee also hosts occasional special events – including a signing session by The Smiths’ Johnny Marr.

And though it offers mail order (with its website’s stock lists regularly updated), those visiting in person are best rewarded for hours spent wading through its bountiful racks.
