Visit York’s Christmas Markets: 16 Nov- 23 Dec 2023

York Christmas Markets open Mid November until Christmas.

York gets into the Festive Christmas spirit from the big Christmas lights switch-on November 16th. 100’s of brightly decorated Scandanavian style chalets open for St Nicholas’ markets, transforming the city centre into a festive wonderland of glitter and joy. Around Parliament Square, St Sampson’s Square and throughout the city you’ll find a treasure trove of festive treats and Christmas gifts.

      Beautifully decorated for Christmas, the Medieval Shambles and Shambles Market are a must-visit. Festive Music, choirs and speciality markets feature at weekends throughout December. Who knows, ‘Santa Claus’ might just find you that special Christmas gift…

      Take a look at what else you can enjoy around the York Christmas Markets:

      New in York this Christmas, Winter Hütte, by Michelin Starred Chef, Andrew Pern, is a two storey ‘pop-up’ restaurant serving delicious food on the top deck and a licensed bar at ground level. It is sure to be a popular choice with Christmas visitors to York. Winter Hütte is open daily until late, 17 Dec – 1 Jan 2023, conveniently close to the bus stop.

      Christmas is a very special time for a visit to York Minster. There’s a Christmas Tree Festival, as well as, traditional carol services and concerts. Or, there’s the seasonal joy of entertainment and pantomimes at the city’s theatres.

      Only a few moments’ drive from York Naburn Lock Caravan Park, the fantastic Winter Wonderland is at York’s Designer Outlet. Here, you will find the largest ice-rink in Yorkshire, a 30ft high Christmas tree spectacularly decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, wooden chalets and the Chalet Café & Bar all designed around an alpine theme.
