York Christmas Market

Be part of the buzz as York switches on its lights and opens its sparkly Christmas market on 15th November. St. Nicholas Fair is going Scandinavian for 2018. More than 100 wooden stalls will bustle and glow, selling handcrafted goods and delicious local farm produce. There’ll be carol singers and buskers, hot chocolate laced with brandy and chestnuts roasting on street corners. You can even meet Santa in his grotto.

Christmas Market information

The fair’s hub is on Parliament Street, with stalls flowing onto Coppergate, St Sampson’s Square and The Judge’s Lodging. Make sure you check out the famous Shambles Market to really enjoy a taste of Yorkshire. There’s also the Medieval Market at Barley Hall, while the city’s grand Guildhall hosts ‘Made in Yorkshire’ for the county’s most talented artists and crafters. And new for 2018, the York Museum Gardens are being transformed into an after-dark illuminated wonderland!
