This Christmas, we’re bringing the York Christmas Market experience to you! The great news is you can browse some of the market’s classic shops and maybe even discover a new hidden gem or two at the virtual York Christmas market! Support local York businesses by buying your festive gifts safely from the comfort of your own home.

The health and wellbeing of our residents, visitors, traders and the city as a whole is, as ever, our top priority and as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, York’s St Nicholas Fair will not be going ahead this year. Despite this, York remains to be proud to have been named ‘The UK’s Most Festive City’ and the city’s restaurants, shops and attractions will still be bringing all the festive cheer to your York experience. Check out the below details of events, experiences, shopping and food offers to enjoy in the city this year.
