Things to see & do
If you've not started your Christmas shopping yet, then head to Nostell Priory and Parkland for our Christmas Craft Fair. On 29 and 30 November, you'll find lots of unique, locally-made items to browse including jewelry, crafts, cards and gifts.
There's lots to enjoy in and around York with Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens, Goddards and Treasurer's House all within short distance of each other. From crackling fires to bracing walks, indulgent hot chocolates or festive meals with friends, each place has a different story to tell.
Looking to escape for a short break over the Christmas period? We got some fabulous holiday cottages to choose from across the county, whether it's a quick getaway you're wanting or chance for the whole family to holiday together. Stay in the grounds of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal or find a countryside retreat in the Yorkshire Dales.
