“Only seems to come to life for Christmas Markets”
Review of Albert Square

Albert Square
Ranked #20 of 187 things to do in Manchester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nothing much really happens at Albert Square during the year except its now quite famous for the Manchester Christmas Markets. The Town Hall is a beautiful building and during a nice warm summers day it's quite pleasant to sit and have a drink at one of the bars that are facing the Town Hall and just watch the world go by, also a good spot to "people watch"!!!

Couldn't really not do the square if going to the Town Hall. Take time to step back and admire the façade of this wonderful building.

I like it when it gets to Christmas and it's lit up and with the Father Christmas it kicks off Christmas. It's also a brilliant place to be when Manchester City win the League.

Had a wonderful time. The fair was fun and bought lots of German decorations for my home. I was even tempted into Harvey Nicks. Spent too much money, but it was fab spending it. Will definitely attend next year.

We came into Manchester to browse round the Christmas markets and really enjoyed it.
Just want to correct a previous review about the lack of toilets near Albert Square. There are newly refurbished toilets just round the corner from the Town Hall on Lloyd Street which provide everything.We found them by asking one of the stall keepers in the market.
The markets are a great place to soak up the Christmas atmosphere and are spread over quite a wide area but we had downloaded a map and wandered around them all.
We went into the Town Hall which has a cafe with very comfortable leather settees to relax in, which is open all year round. We were so impressed with the building and are going to come back and take a guided tour.Well worth a visit.
