The best Christmas markets in Cheshire

Well it’s that time of year again, when we indulge in all sorts of strange antics. From wearing jumpers we wouldn’t normally be seen dead in, to drinking hot, spiced wine and sharing our home with a fully formed deciduous tree! However, in our opinion, one of the more sensible Christmas traditions is a visit to a lovely Christmas market. Here at Rickitt Partnership, we thought we would bring you our guide to the best artisan Christmas markets that our fabulous county has to offer.

Manchester Christmas Markets

The Manchester Christmas Markets are always a spectacle to behold and are guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit. Be spoilt for choice with nearly three hundred and fifty unique stalls and chalets offering a variety of local and international gifts. Once you have built up a hunger with all that Christmas shopping, partake in some of the truly international winter fare on offer from traditional German sausages to Hungarian goulash, Spanish paella or, for the less adventurous, a good old-fashioned traditional hog roast.
