The opening date for Liverpool's Christmas Markets has been confirmed and there is not long to wait.
From November 18 until December 24, the markets will be returning to St George's Plateau and William Brown Street. The area will once again hold the Christmas markets like they have done since the move from Church Street in 2016.

Returning for 2023 will be the tipi bar, ski bar, windmill bar where guests can get a drink. New for 2023 is the Bavarian bar. The new addition will host local performers on the weekends while the karaoke ski-lifts will return for those wanting to take the music into their own hands.
The big wheel, snow slide and Santa Land rides will be back too. A full range of food stalls is yet to be confirmed but we can expect everything from hand-crafted chocolates and pretzels to burgers, hot dogs and a range of continental influences.
