Yesterday we were in Manchester. During this two years we went maybe ten times to Manchester but never before christmas. This time a surprise was waiting for us: a big christmas market. Best christmas markets we know are in Germany, they are really good on it. Christmas markets in London (except the Winter Wonderland where there is a lot of German touch) are not so successful.
Manchester Christmas Market, is a big classic German christmas market and it is brilliant. Main part of the market is in Albert Square. There are also stalls in King Street, Brazennose Street, Exchange Street, Hanging Ditch. If you want to visit, it will be open until 23 December, Sunday-Wednesday 12.00-19.00, Thursday-Saturday 12.00-20.30.
As a typical German market (even is in Britain), it was full of mulled wine, beer, sausage and chocolate smells, also christmas decorations, Polish pottery and lots of other gift choices. We didn’t miss the chance to eat a good charcoal grilled German sausage.
If you want to bring home some of them, also there is opportunity.
We first met in Frankfurt with the Polish pottery and we love them.
For warming your feet in cold winter nights.
Who can resist to this variety of chocolates?
