Stay in a Beautiful Country House Hotel with Leisure Facilities
Another long-standing favourite for Leisuretimers, Manchester Christmas Market is a riot of festive colour and fun set in the heart of this buzzing metropolis.
With more than 300 beautifully festooned stalls and chalets spread across the city centre, the Christmas Markets are free and accessible to all. Soak up the atmosphere and follow the market trail as it winds through the city centre, tempting you with gifts, crafts, jewellery, clothes and toys. European and local producers offer everything from fine amber jewellery, handcrafted leather bags and top-quality bonsai trees, to handmade Belgian kitchenware, framed photo prints and French soaps.
And don’t miss the amazing array of food and drink! Manchester’s Christmas Markets are famous for traditional bratwurst, but visitors can also treat themselves to Hungarian goulash, Spanish paella or a good old-fashioned hog roast.
And for those of you after even more shopping options, we've also included a visit to Manchester's famous Trafford Centre...fill your boots!
