Manchester Christmas Markets in short list for best in Europe

  • Voting will open for the best Christmas Market in Europe on December 1
  • Manchester has yet again made the shorlist

Manchester, which is regularly named as one of the best Christmas Markets in Europe, is one of only a handful of UK cities to be nominated by influential travel website, European Best Destination.

After being named in the top 10 best Christmas Markets in Europe for the past several years, Manchester is now looking to take the top spot as voting for this year’s best opens on December 1 for 10 days.

Councillor Pat Karney, Manchester's Christmas Spokesperson, said: "We’re a modest lot in Manchester, but when we have something as exceptional as our Christmas Markets we can’t help but be proud and shout about it.

“We are regularly in the Top 10 Christmas Markets in the world and as we keep getting better and better we hope we can better our rating from last year – we’re looking at top spot and we believe the markets deserve it!”

Visitors to Manchester’s award-winning Christmas Markets can vote from Tuesday, 1 December and remain open for 10 days.
