Barton Arcade is a small Victorian shopping arcade in the centre of Manchestermarker, Englandmarker, between Deansgatemarker and St Ann Square. It houses high-end shops, as well as offices. The historical building was listed as Grade II* on the 25 January 1972. The listing extends to the whole of the Barton Building, of which the Arcade is a part. It was constructed in 1871. It contains 15 stores and boutiques.

The entrance to the arcade on St. Ann Square incorporates a large, cast iron and glass wall. The two entrances on Deansgatemarker are hidden behind the Barton Building. The building has four levels, the top three of which consist of balconies around a large open space. The whole structure is composed of cast iron and glass, with the iron from Macfarlane Saracen Glass Factory in Glasgowmarker.

The building was one of the first to be built on the newly-widened Deansgatemarker road. The arcade was restored in the 1980s. The original shop fronts, as well as the original decorative floor, no longer exist.
