As big municipal squares go this one must be in my top 7. A nice Australian man from Lancashire Cricket club was asking people to record their fastest bowling speed which was different. He could have been from New Zealand but I thought it rude to ask. New Zealander's tend to play Rugby more than cricket so on balance it... More

Similar to my review of St Anne's Square....just a quick walk through of known places to tick-off on a walk round the city centre. The Town Hall is here and next to this the library. We took a few photos of the Town Hall and the statues in the square and then carried on. The Town Hall is worth a... More

Albert Square is a fabulous tourist meeting point, when it is not hosting an event which takes the square area. Usually a village of eateries and shops bordered by a cheap fence boundary with security entrance to keep out the Manchester drunk population, avoid later in evening. When no such event excellent bars and eateries surrounding square.

Been here a number of times since being in Manchester, from the Christmas Markets to St Georges Festival. There is often something going on in this space. Even saw my friend who had just got married have some of his wedding photos taken here which turned out really nice. Nice square in general!

Lovely place to sit and people watch. There are several points of interest including a fountain dedicated to Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee.

A beautiful restored open space now that the the grime and the traffic of yesteryear are banished. A great location for the Christmas Markets and all sorts of other events throughout the year.

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.

Albert Square its a lovely place in the centre of Manchester. Lots to do around with a nice shopping area and many restaurants around. Also, lots of the Manchester attractions are a few meters away with the Old Town Hall close by. Its also the main place for open air galleries and Christmas Markets, and its a place you would...
