Manchester Christmas Markets, Albert Square
Manchester Christmas Markets, Albert Square
Probably the largest (certainly the most crowded) section of the Manchester Christmas Markets is in Albert Square; in front of the Grade I listed, Victorian Town Hall complete with inflatable Father Christmas. This view is from Cross Street.

The Christmas markets first arrived in Manchester in 1998, when the council of Frankfurt hosted a small traditional German market of just 17 stalls in St Annís Square.

Now an annual event, the 2011 Christmas Market has an array of over 200 stalls spread across Albert Square, Brazenose Street, King Street, St Ann's Square, New Cathedral Street, Exchange Square and Piccadilly operating from 17th November to 21st December.
