    Edinburgh sits in second place with 98,600 searches for this year's Christmas market in the Scottish capital.

    Surprisingly, Winchester comes in at third for the most searches with more than 50,000 people wanting to know more about the Hampshire town's Christmas arrangements.

    This study has taken into account Google searches in the UK for towns and cities "Christmas Market" from the start of November to Early December, discovering which places people are most interested in knowing about.

    A spokesperson for Coffee said: "With so many Christmas markets cancelled last year because of the pandemic, 2021 has brought a new sense of excitement around this yer's festivities.

    "Our research has pinpointed which places are on most people's radars with thousands of revellers expected to enjoy the shopping and entertainment on offer in the lead up to the big day.

    Manchester has topped our list, but maybe more surprisingly is that Christmas markets in Winchester, Bristol and York are somewhat more sought after than in London."
