We would highly recommend that you come into the centre via public transport, or if you are staying in the city for a weekend break, to find an apartment as close to the city centre as you can to make sure that you are within walking distance of everything you wish to see.

If you are using public transport the Christmas markets are close to both Deansgate and Victoria railway stations, and there is a free Metro shuttle bus that allows for a hop-on, hop-off service throughout the centre.

There is also an extensive tram network in Manchester that links to the centre to many areas within Greater Manchester.
