Albert Square is a busy little place with usually something going on. When I went it was a road safety display by GMP and other agencies. The square..being central..is handy for the rest of the city.

Dinner on Saturday evening was very good despite the restaurant being pretty busy; well-cooked food including good local meat; our waitress was excellent and made good recommendations on the wine front. Breakfast the next day was another story as they seemed short staffed and preoccupied with an influx of minor celebs who were taking part in the Sport Relief run... More

Tourists will love Albert Square for it's historical and magnificent Manchester Town Hall. And that's not all, there are countless contemporary bars, great old pubs with lots of Mancunian history, and restaurants of the world in this great Square - whatever your palette desires you're bound to find something mouth watering and satiating in Manchester's Albert Square.

What a lovely way to get in the Christmas spirit. Don't go at peak times soooooooooooo busy. Needs a visit when dark when the lights are on, very pretty.

I got some nice photos here on my trip. I would like to visit during the day and see inside the building.

Brilliant atmosphere. A crowd of us came from Wales for an evening at the Bridgewater Hall ( superb) and a meal at the Yang Sing (not quite so good) The Albert Square market is now a well established Manchester tradition and it just gets better and better. Next year we have decided that we will cut out the expensive meal... More

Albert square was dirty and scruffy and so were most of the surrounding streets. The Manchester City Council should be ashamed of their performance. It's not due to lack of funding, it's about low aspirations and accepting excuses and for poor standards. I used to be so proud of this City but the Looney Left seem to be determined to... More

Visited the city during Christmas season. Love the Christmas market at there. It's a must visit place during festival season!

Always enjoy the markets and Albert Square is an essential part of the experience. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and close to transport links.

Brilliant all year round venue, with all sorts of things happening. The Christmas Market was exceptional with really exiting food and nice friendly bars on site. The stalls were laid out in such a way they exuded Christmas cheer and a nice festive atmosphere. I also noticed a Chanukah Menorah to commemorate the festival of Hanukkah which I felt portrayed...
