The dates for this year’s Manchester Christmas Markets have been announced. They will be open fromĀ November 8 until December 21 and promise to deliver another season of delight.

Spread across the city centre, the Christmas Markets are located within aboutĀ a quarter of a mile of each other. The hub of the markets will again be Albert Square, despite previous concerns that town hall renovations would force a move to a new location. Known as the original, biggest and best Christmas Markets in the UK, Manchester Christmas Markets have previously been voted one of the best in Europe by the European Best Destinations organisation.
