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.

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.
