Map & Directions

Public Transport Directions

The Christmas Markets are located across Manchester city centre and are close to the Deansgate and Victoria train stations. Download our map of the city centre to plan your route.

Within the city centre, Metroshuttle provides a free ‘hop on, hop off’ bus service linking all of the main rail stations, shopping districts and business areas. There are three services which operate on circular routes.See tfgm.com/metroshuttle for more information.

If you're coming to our Christmas Markets this year, consider leaving the car at home. You can avoid the stress of parking and treat yourself to a Gluhwein or fine ale at one of the many bars along the market trail.

Transport for Greater Manchester's website has all the information you need on bus, train and tram times to make your journey as easy as possible.

If you do need to drive you can find out about Manchester's car parks here.
