Festive days out in the North East
Get yourself ready for Christmas away from the hustle and bustle of the high street with Christmas shopping, visits to see Father Christmas and festive days out in some truly magical places.
Festive days out
- A trip to Wallington on a December weekend promises a special festive atmosphere with decorations, crafts, a tree trail and stories with Mrs Christmas. There’ll be festive food in the café with a roaring log fire and a chance to pick up some shopping too.
- Gibside has some special events taking place in the run up to Christmas. On Festive Fridays at Gibside pub and beer garden there’ll be carol singing, mulled wine, mince pies and late night shopping. There will also be a special Christmas by Candlelight carol concert at Gibside chapel on Thursday 17 December.
Please note that Cragside have unfortunately had to cancel their Christmas events this year due to damage from the recent storms making the grounds unsafe for visitors, staff and volunteers.
