Manchester Christmas Markets.
With X’mas only a few weeks away, it’s that time of the year again where I need my annual fix of Gluhwein, Bratwurst and all things Christmas Market-y. And if there is one city in the UK that knows how to put on a proper Christmas Market, it’s Manchester. The prop-up stalls here span entire city blocks from Albert Square all the way up to the Arndale and Market Street… Gluhwein, Bratwursts and Arts & Crafts aplenty with locals out in full force to enjoy the seasonal festivities. We had a stonkingly good time when we went up a couple of years ago in 2008, and with train fares from London at a mere £25 return, it seemed the ideal weekend getaway to get warmed up for the festive period ahead. Here’s some of the sights and tastes from a lovely Mancunian weekend…
Oh how I’m already looking forward to the holiday season and compulsory over-indulging that is yet to come.
