Fun things to do

Still looking for things to do over the holidays? Don't worry - we've got you covered.

Manchester Christmas Markets, Manchester
10 November – 20 December

Manchester's world famous, award-winning Christmas markets are back for another year! One of the largest events of its kind in the UK, the market magically winds its way through some of the city's most eye-catching streets. Grab a German sausage, enjoy a mulled wine or two, and pick up some unique crafts – we'll do the driving for you.

We've got late night buses on Saturdays, too, so if you fancy staying out late (until 3am!), we have just the ticket.

The Witchway drops you off in the heart of the action by Albert Square – and when you're finished, we'll pick you up again.
