The Christmas Markets are coming
Summer has gone and left us and the nights are drawing in so now definitely feels like the perfect time to start talking all things Christmas!
If you’re a resident of Manchester you will be aware of the buzz about the city at the start of the festive season. The anticipation of none other than our famous Christmas markets loved by the population.
Expect visitors from afar and the delicious circulation of mulled wine and bratwurst through the air. November 8th is the official opening date for the markets but seeing those log cabins sitting patiently to fling open their doors and sell beautifully hand-crafted wares and traditional oddities is the true beginning of Christmas for us.
If you’re visiting Manchester for Christmas why not stay in a hotel in the very heart of the city? We’re based just a five minute walk from the Christmas markets, ice rink and children’s ferris wheel! With reduced rates rooms in November and December now is the perfect time to book.
The markets really are an incredible day or weekend out if you want to really experience the activities, flavours and atmosphere. The opening times and dates of the markets are Friday 8th of November until Saturday 20th of December from 10:00am daily until 7:30pm (8:00pm in December) with the exception of Albert Square’s markets which are open from 10:00am ‘til 9:00pm every day. The markets leave on Saturday 20th of December, again with the exception of Albert Square, which will stay an extra day until Sunday 21st of December.
We highly recommend you visit the markets, especially if you’re a Manchester winter first timer. They really are the magical icing on the Christmas cake.
