Manchester Christmas Markets feature 350 stalls spanning 10 distinctive market sites, transforming the city centre in to a festive wonderland. Running up until 22nd December from 10 – 9 you can find yourself on lunch breaks or after work spending a few hours exploring the markets which are dotted all over the city.
Centred around Albert Square the stalls sell handmade gifts, crafts jewellery and international food and drinks. Even if you have already finished your Christmas shopping you can completely soak up the Christmas atmosphere and indulge in mulled wine and traditional bratwurst.
The markets have been running since 1998 growing each year. Having experienced the markets in the early years and again this year, the transformation is quite vast. With more traditional traders and stalls arriving id even say that each year feels more festive… ideal for getting you in to the Christmas Spirit!
