Hallmark Hotels Christmas Markets in Manchester
Manchester Christmas Markets
From: 14th November - 21st December
OK, so chances are you’re staying at Manchester Airport for a very obvious reason; the airport itself. Nevertheless, MAN- to use the aviation abbreviation- is handy for the City of Manchester itself. Transport links to the busy centre are first class (trams, trains, buses and taxis are all in abundance), with rail connections taking as little as ten minutes to get you into Piccadilly Station. From there it’s a short walk, or a free Metro Shuttle bus, to Manchester’s now-renowned Christmas Markets. Centred around Albert Square, and many of the surrounding streets, this is one of the UK’s largest offerings, and takes direct inspiration from the kind of seasonal pop-up shopping you’ll find in Germany, where the concept originates. In addition to a vast array of gifts, you can also find heartwarming food, plenty of drink- from mulled ciders and wines to hot chocolate- and even live music.
