The Best Christmas Markets in the United Kingdom 

With colder weather and warmer drinks, there is nothing better to get you in the Christmas spirit than a Christmas market. While the famous Winter Wonderland is believed to be the best option in the UK, we are here to show you some less-known, cheaper alternatives to London’s biggest attraction. 

Nottingham: November 15 – December 31

In the town’s city center, Nottingham’s Wonderland is one of the most significant festive events in the Midlands. From day to night, this market is filled with rides, an ice rink, games, an incredible food hall, and more, ensuring something for everyone to enjoy. Just remember, don’t drink and skate!

York: November 17 – December 23

You might be surprised to realize you are not in a victorian novel but in reality, you’re in a  beautiful open-planned Christmas market with victorian stalls and live singing all evening. A few years ago, York was voted one of the most festive towns in the UK. Why not enjoy quality time with friends and family at York’s Christmas market? 

Brighton: November 18 – December 24

Brighton is the first Christmas market to be set up by the sea, and clearly, it was a massive success in 2021 and is now back for a second season. It is promising to be the most significant and brightest winter attraction in Sussex, with over 150 stalls of food, drinks, games, live entertainment, and more. This attraction has an Apres Ski Zone, perfect for families with active young ones.
