Liverpool's Christmas markets are back for another year of phenomenal food, drinks and shopping.
From November 18 until December 24, visitors can wander St George's Plateau and William Brown Street to lap up the very best of the holiday season.
Rows upon rows of independent traders set up shop to offer a range of unique hand-crafted items or delicious food and this year will be no different.

LIVE: Christmas 2023 build-up across Liverpool and beyond from events to best deals
Confirmed for 2023 is the tipi bar, ski bar, windmill bar and the new Bavarian bar where guests can get a drink. The new arrival 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.
Visitors will be able to sit comfortably and sip on the likes of mulled wine and gingerbread cocktails to bar favourites and potentially even some egg nog, along with a stacked spirit bar.
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.
Some of the continuously returning stalls include Pick and Mix, Yorkshire Pudding Wrap Co, Meme Salt and Pepper Sui Mai, The Greek and Halloumination Halloumi Fries. They're joined by independent businesses offering something for the sweet tooth including chocolates, cakes, pretzels, doughnuts, churros and an assortment of Christmas treats.
To keep the little ones entertained, the big wheel, snow slide and Santa Land rides are confirmed to return this year. Other favourites we could see return include the vintage carousel and the slew of prize stalls. An officialRead on liverpoolecho.co.uk
