Manchester’s Christmas Markets have returned bigger and better this year.

The main hub at Albert Square boasts of plenty of shopping, tasty food and drink and other festive delights, and will open from 10am-9pm from November 10-December 20, closing day on Wednesday, December 21 (10am-6pm).

The markets, now stretching right across the city, will feature several zones including Brazennose Street, King Street, Exchange Street, Exchange Square, St Ann’s Square, New Cathedral Street, the Corn Exchange, Market Street, and Cathedral Gardens – opening from 10am -7.30pm from November 10 and throughout the month, and then from 10am-8pm from December 1-20.

For students keen on getting their skates on, this year’s markets will feature a new exciting addition of The Rink at Cathedral Gardens. This is open until January 7 from 11am until 9pm daily (closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day).

Markets in all zones, except for Albert Square, close on December 20. Albert Square is the final area to pack up, letting you enjoy one last minute spree, as it finishes one day later on December 21st.
