Lot's of things to do in this historic area of Manchester. In the City centre so easy to access on foot. Otherwise, buses, trams and taxis are available depending on the amount you want to pay. Good retail opportunities along with plenty of near by places for eating or drinks.

A continuously changing scene in Albert Square depending on the time of year. It seems to me that every time I go to Manchester Albert Square has become something different - from an exhibition venue to a Christmas market. Nine times out of ten it is interesting and worth the visit.

A nice place to go and have fun with friends and family. Just took some pictures with my family. Sometimes, there are events at this spot with lot of people. 2 years ago, we took wedding pictures here and they were brilliant.

Love sitting at this place taking in the fabulous buildongs around especially the Town Hall. But only like it when there's no event going on which seems to be happening very often. The Christmas market is still the best at this square and is a must visit. Some good places to eat around and drink too even if it's a... More

Albert Square is the large pedestrianised area in front of Manchester's Town Hall. It was built soon after Prince Albert's death in the 1860's and is home to a number of Victorian monuments. In the middle is the Albert Memorial, very similar but smaller than the one in London. Beside this stands Gladstone who was prime minister at the time.... More
