This year, the hugely popular St Nicholas Fair will return to York. The charming alpine chalets will once again line the streets from 18 November to 23 December, with local businesses selling everything from handmade gifts to delicious treats.

The UK’s Most Festive City will have a lot more Christmas cheer on offer too. The city’s restaurants, shops and attractions will be beautifully decorated and provide you with a wonderful winter experience. For the perfect York Christmas, stay longer and give yourself a luxurious amount of time to soak up the festive atmosphere.

Keep checking back for more events and details as they are added.
