Soon enough, the most wonderful time of the year will be upon us, and who doesn’t love the charm and magic of a Christmas market? Throughout November, stalls will begin filling our city streets as seasonal cheer erupts for another year.

Whether it’s browsing for handmade gifts, slurping some mulled wine or munching on bratwurst that seals the deal for you, you’ll find fantastic Christmas markets in towns and cities all around the UK. But one of the biggest – and arguably one of the best – is in Manchester. 

The market runs right through the city, filling the likes of Exchange Square and New Cathedral Street, before reaching its centerpiece location in the beautiful Albert Square. So big is the event now, that you might want more than one day to take it all in.
