After cancellations due to COVID last year, the York Christmas market is back and more festive than ever before. Festivities will take of York’s restaurants, shops and attractions providing visitors with a wonderful winter experience.
St Nicholas Fair, the hugely popular market will be returning to York with its alpine chalet lining the city centre from the 18th November to the 23rd December. Local businesses will be selling handmade gifts and delicious and unique tasty treats.
Make magical memories with a trip you’ll never forget with a stroll through Parliament Square and St Sampson’s Square this winter. The streets will be lit with twinkling lights and each chalet will be stocked with unique products from stocking fillers to special gifts. The air will once again be filled with the smell of German Bratwurst, and the cobbled streets filled with music and laughter.
Experience all the traditional Christmas foods from warming mulled wine in the cheery, buzzing atmosphere to mince pies and ginger breadmen. The famous Shambles market will also have plenty of indie sellers selling cakes, trinkets and other incredible things.
Thor’s Tipi has also confirmed its return with its firepit and mulled wine along with Yuzu Street Food, which proved hugely popular this summer.
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.
The markets will be open from the 18th November – 23rd December 2021, Sunday – Thursday 10:00 to 18:00 and Friday & Saturday 10:00 to 20:00.
