This is a nice place to pass by when in town, usually there are street performances you can enjoy while sipping coffee from the Starbucks across

You can wander around or sit down to experience the traditional Manchester buildings and the busy square and I just love watching people passing by.

This use to be a lovely square with upmarket shops. Over the past few years the square has become very run down, empty shops and rubbish strewn everywhere. The only time this is worth visiting is when the Christmas market or other festive markets are on.

Most of its historic buildings, including the church of the same name, and statues, have survived. Its show-stopper is the Royal Exchange Theatre, which also fronts Cross Street and Market Street.

A public square that marks one end of the Central Retail District. A pleasant place to stroll, shop, and people watch.

The square is a bustling area and on the day that we visited there were lots of displays associated with the Chinese new Year. At one end of the square is the lovely St Anne's church which is well worth a visit.

It's a lovely square with designer shops dotted around in the historic buildings that line the square. A great place to relax and enjoy.

The xmas markets are situated in various locations throughout the city centre- st Ann's square being one. All are accessible by foot. The largest is in Albert Square and is where most of the food and drink stalls are located. Make sure you sample a hot mug of gluhwein. There is a French market, st Ann's square has some German...

Had a wander through here today to see the Christmas Market Stalls. Fab area to browse. Culture seeps through the whole area. Bought some bread and cheese.
