York Christmas Market – 16th November – 22nd December 2023
York Christmas Market is back and it’s more Christmassy than ever before. York is stunning at this time of year with its medieval charm and scents of spiced mulled wine filling its streets. St Nicholas Fair is at the Heart of the York’s Christmas activities.
Stroll along Parliament Street and St Sampson’s square where wintry alpine chalets run up the street and around the square. Each chalet is stocked with unique products with everything from stocking fillers and extra special gifts, to delicious tasty treats. Enjoy a bite to eat or sip on some warming mulled wine in the cheery, buzzing atmosphere.
Visit the historic Shambles Market, home to a wide range of local indie traders selling everything from Yorkshire flat caps to delicious cakes to incredible hand-crafted trinkets. Don’t miss the Shambles Food Court, where you can treat yourself to a scrumptious snack. International street food is on the menu. Take your taste buds on a journey around the world, with everything from Moroccan wraps, to tempting Thai, to brilliant burritos.
Laughter and cheers echo around Kings Square, home to a vintage carousel, a great place to have some thrills and fun with the family.
Once you’re all shopped out, rest those tired legs and relax in the cosy setting of Thor’s Tipi, with a hot in hand, or perhaps something stronger.
