“A nice focal point”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a pleasant place, with benches, trees, pretty paving patterns, sculptures, and a fountain. It is also often the venue for events (such as the Christmas Market), exhibitions and promotions. At other times though, it's a great place to sit out & eat your lunch on one of Manchester's rare sunny days. There are also plenty of eateries nearby, and it's quite easy to get to most areas of the City Centre from there. The main entrance to Manchester's Town Hall is also on Albert Square, and it is often used for news interviews with Councillors and Council representatives.

“Manchester's Grand Place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The square has interesting fountains and often has themed markets. While you are here have a look around the fantastic neo-Gothic Town Hall. No one will mind if you just walk in and walk along the ground floor corridors and look at the ornate carvings.

“Christmas markets”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The best time to visit Albert Square directly in front of Manchester Town Hall. The markets have been running now for a good number of years and just get better and better.
