Step into a world of festive delights at one of our Christmas markets during November and December. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of the season in inspiring surroundings and find unique and high quality gifts for family and friends.

You’ll find handmade and vintage items, locally-sourced food, a variety of arts and crafts products and beautiful decorations for your home. While you’re choosing you’ll be able to enjoy carols and Christmas music and seasonal treats such as mulled wine and mince pies.

Relive old festive traditions at fairs with a Victorian or Edwardian twist and see the places we look after dressed up for the season ahead with decorative displays and Christmas lights. There’ll also be the chance to meet Father Christmas at many of our markets too.

As well as being a great day out for all the family and a perfect antidote to the stresses of the high street, by coming along to one of our Christmas markets you’ll also be helping us to carry on looking after special places for everyone to enjoy.
