Serviced apartments in Manchester for 2012 Christmas Markets

If you’re heading to Manchester to do some Christmas shopping this year then make sure you check out the Christmas Markets. Manchester’s Christmas Markets are considered to be amongst the best in the UK and even Europe, attracting thousands of visitors to the city every year. This year, the markets will be spread across 8 city centre locations and will be open from Sunday 17th November until Sunday 23rd December. Plenty of time for even the most last minute of Christmas shoppers to take a look!


With their traditional wooden chalets, twinkling lights and lively, festive atmosphere, these markets are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. You can browse through the stalls selling gifts that range from beautiful jewellery, scented soap, Bonsai trees, handcrafted leather goods and more. You’re guaranteed to pick up some great gifts for friends and family (and probably a few gifts for yourself too!) When you’ve exhausted all of the gift stalls, you could treat yourself to some delicious market food; cakes, fudge, biscuits, bratwurst, crepes! Or you can indulge in a refreshing German beer, tasty mulled wine or hot chocolate to warm you up. The atmosphere at the Manchester markets is electric and well worth a visit when Christmas shopping in the city.
