5 of the best UK Christmas Markets



(1) York

Voted the UK’s most festive City in 2017, where else would you rather go for a long Christmas-filled break?!

The annual St Nicholas fair is host to hundreds of festive stalls filled with Yorkshire produce which is showcased at the Yuletide village. Don’t forget to stop by St Sampson’s Square rustic barn to sample festive treats such as hot chestnuts and cups of warming and spicy mulled wine. Yum!

The York Christmas Market runs from 14th November right up until 22nd December 2019.


(2) London Bridge Christmas Market

Christmas by the river at London Bridge is a not-so-hidden treasure that many visitors forget about when planning their Christmas market trip to Hyde Park for Winter Wonderland.

Christmas by the river offers a combination of homemade gifts, delicious food and beverages; from German-style sausages to roasted chestnuts and warm, mulled wine and ciders, and plenty of stocking fillers for even that most difficult friend!

Start or complete your day trip to London with a visit to the riverside Christmas Market.

The market runs from November 2019 to January 2020. Exact dates yet to be released.
