“With the festive season now upon us, LendInvest has found the ten towns and cities that host the biggest and most popular Christmas markets around the country, and ranked them according to their positions on the latest LendInvest BTL Index. Manchester and Birmingham, incidentally home to the two largest Christmas markets in the UK, take first and second place in the table. Manchester also ranked #1 overall in this quarter’s BTL index after an impressive climb to the top (rising from #21 in February, to #8 in June and #3 in September).”
Ian Boden, Sales Director of LendInvest, also commented on the index by noting:
“It’s exciting to celebrate this list of some of the country’s most vibrant and festive towns at this time of the year. Not only do these places get into the spirit of the season, but their Christmas markets play an important role in their local economies. Every market will attract many visitors to the region every year, benefitting the town’s own retail, hospitality and accommodation sectors.”
LendInvest added that all ten Christmas Market towns ranked highly this quarter, with towns one to ten ranking in the top 50 of the latest BTL Index. See the graphic below.
