A brief history of ‘Manchester Christmas Markets’

The first, largest and – many would argue – the premier Christmas market in the country, Manchester Christmas Markets is the perfect destination for a festive day out.

First showing in Manchester in 1999, and ground-breaking as the first major City Christmas market in the UK, the award-winning Manchester Xmas Markets has grown steadily in size and popularity every year since then. It is estimated to now attract in excess of nine million visitors each year! 

Manchester’s Christmas Markets have been attracting thousands of visitors to the city centre almost every year since 1998 offering mouth-watering international food, drinks and delicately crafted Yuletide gifts in the heart of this buzzing city.

With beautifully festooned stalls and chalets spread across the 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. European and local producers offer everything from fine amber jewellery, handcrafted leather bags and top-quality bonsai trees, to handmade Belgian kitchenware, framed photo prints and French soaps.

And when planning a visit, don’t miss the amazing array of food and drink! Manchester’s Christmas Markets are famous for traditional bratwurst, but visitors can also treat themselves to Hungarian goulash, Spanish paella or a good old-fashioned hog roast.

Plenty of vegetarian options will be on offer, and for those with a sweet tooth the choices are even more mouth-watering and there is always magnificent views of  Manchester’s iconic Cathedral and other outstanding architecture.
