Merry Christmas York! #yorkchristmas

Every Christmas, York is transformed into a winter wonderland offering superb shopping, magical festivals and a fantastic programme of events for all the family.

Vibrant Street markets from 19 November onwards until Christmas, moving carol concerts at historic venues and the essence of hot mulled wine and roasting chestnuts help create a festive feel! If you want to do your Christmas shopping, York is the city, with a pedestrianised city centre full of boutique shops and markets with wonderful unique gifts as well as the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet just 10 min drive from the city centre.

Christmas is about sharing experiences with loved ones so why not share a chocolate making workshop and make your own chocolate Christmas tree or take your children to meet Santa and his reindeers in popular attractions in and beyond York.

Don’t miss Fairfax House and popular attractions like Barley Hall for a Christmas experience from bygone areas. With so many things to do, you need to stay in York.
