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.

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.
