The Ashton Arcades, also known locally as just Arcades, is a medium-sized shopping centre located in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, England.

It currently has over 40 stores over two floors and a multi-storey car park for customers. There are approved plans for the expansion of the centre which will also re-develop the adjacent bus station and add a tram station for the expansion of Manchester Metrolink. The expansion of the centre will cost £40m[1] and add 16,722 m² (180,000 ft²) of retail space which will more than double the current centre. The expansion comes at a time when Ashton has seen huge regeneration with a new leisure park at Ashton Moss and the UK’s first in-town IKEA store.
