Manchester Christmas Markets

Christmas is truly a magical time of year in Manchester for everyone. There is the spectacular of the Christmas light switch on, festive shows and seasonal performances throughout the city. There is one annual occurrence that draws visitors from miles around at this time of year, the famous Manchester Christmas Markets.

Walking around the city centre it will not take you long to notice the Christmas markets’ influence. The streets begin to line with festive stalls tempting you with free samples and the opportunity to buy everything from gifts to food and drink. The tempting aroma of incredible food from all around the world and twinkling Christmas lights, it is all so comforting. It won’t be long before you find yourself with a drink in one hand and food in the other as you take in the incredible sights.

The markets offer over 300 stalls, covering most of the City’s squares and main shopping streets. Don’t worry about getting lost though as there are maps located around to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

When I headed over last week, there were many pop up bars located around the markets with Christmas decorations hanging from their wooden stalls. Gluhwein and beer seemed to be the choice of drinks for the majority of people walking around the markets (including myself).

As I wandered around the markets one stall caught my eye more than any other, ‘The French House’. Their stall seemed to be one of the larger ones located around the markets. They sold a variety of produce from onions, sausages, garlic and much more. They even had oversized blocks of cheese!

From German to Indian, French to Chinese there are food stalls to suit any palate. Of course I decided to keep it classic with an incredibly tasty authentic German Bratwurst. Regardless of your tastes I have to say that there is definitely something for everyone.
