Attracting shoppers from all over the UK and beyond, the market has put Manchester city centre firmly on the Christmas map – the Christmas Market has become not just a fabulous place to shop but also a hugely popular leisure destination in its own right. No Mancunian winter is complete without a wander through the chalet-lined streets of the markets. The Christmas Markets are located in different spaces around the city, each with its own distinct character and atmosphere: Albert Square | Brazennose Street | St Ann's Square | Exchange Street | New Cathedral Street | The Corn Exchange | Corporation Street The array of over 300 stalls is mind-boggling, with mouthwatering delicacies from all over Europe. The choice is getting bigger and bigger and includes gifts, crafts, jewellery, clothes, toys and an array of food and drink.

Soak up the atmosphere of a truly international event with a uniquely Mancunian flavour.
