Trip Report Manchester Christmas Markets

Jump to last reply

We spent a very pleasant day yesterday at the Christmas Markets in Manchester. We,ve been to similar offerings in Europe, like Prague, but they are a lot smaller. Manchester has several hundred stalls in chalet style spread across the City centre, not just crammed into one square.

There's a great deal of choice of Christmas ornaments, food and gifts. The food is decribed thus:

"The array of food and drink on offer is mind-boggling, with mouth-watering delicacies from all over Europe. Try sweet and savoury treats from Dutch mini pancakes and Hungarian goulash to Spanish paella. Relax with a hot chocolate, warming Gluhwein, German or Spanish beer or French wine".

See the website: http://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/616/specialist_markets/5687/new_for_2012_visitor_information_and_travel

Don't mean this to sound like a pushy ad, but it was so good and if you can and you are near, take the time to go and see.
