Manchester Christmas Markets
Attracting shoppers from all over the UK and beyond, the market has put Manchester city centre firmly on the Christmas map – the Christmas Market has become not just a fabulous place to shop but also a hugely popular leisure destination in its own right. No Mancunian winter is complete without a wander through the chalet-lined streets of the markets.
Manchester’s award-winning Christmas Markets returns this winter offering mouth-watering international food, drinks and delicately crafted Yuletide gifts in the heart of this buzzing city.
Cheshire Oaks Giant Christmas Tree
Cheshire Oaks Giant Christmas Tree has returned. Standing as tall as 7 buses and with over 100,000 baubles it’s a sight that cannot be missed.
Inside the tree visitors will be able to marvel at the thousands of twinkling lights. Entrance into the tree is free but there is a suggested £1 donation to the nominated charity, The British Red Cross to help support their great work.
Victorian Christmas at Quarry Bank
The Quarry Bank workers and apprentices have to finish their jobs before the festivities can begin. Can you help them get to the Christmas party?
In the Mill all talk of Christmas had been banned until work is done. It’s difficult to keep the festive spirit out though and there are rumours of a party. Can you follow the trail to discover Christmas traditions and help the workers with their jobs?
The Mill Yard presents a festive scene with decorations including wreaths, lights and of course the Christmas tree. Outside, local choirs or brass bands perform your favourite carols, all whilst enjoying a warm mince pie and delicious hot drink.
Gordale Garden & Home Centre
Gordale is the only place you need to visit for your all your Christmas essentials- we have everything but the turkey!!
Our Christmas department opens in the weeks running up to the festive period, where inspirational displays, room settings and festive themes help you select the best products for your home.
Baubles, tree trims, tinsel, wreaths, swags, ornaments, candles, Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes, lights for indoors and outdoors, animated figures, crackers, Christmas cards, Advent Calendars, Christmas tableware, napkins and cloths – you won’t find a bigger or better display anywhere in the North West.
Each year, you can see Santa arrive at Gordale with his trusty reindeer, and from then until 23rd December you can have the chance to visit him in his very festive Christmas Grotto in store.
