Time to soak up the festive atmosphere in two world-class cities
Another long-standing favourite for Leisuretimers, Manchester & Liverpool 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 Manchester 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.
