Our 7th Harrogate Christmas Market will be held in
the Town Centre from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th November 2018. Admission is
FREE for pedestrians and the site is wheelchair accessible. It is not
recommended to bring dogs due to the large crowds expected.
This four-day Harrogate Christmas Market will be a
very large event, comparable with longer established Christmas Markets in other
northern towns such as Durham, Lincoln and York. It will be a high quality
upmarket event with a traditional Yorkshire theme. It will attract many visitors to Harrogate to see the Christmas Lights and enjoy the town centre’s
excellent shopping and hospitality facilities.
There will be about 200 stalls, including chalets and
market stalls of various sizes, a large Crafts & Gifts Marquee offering quality
merchandise with a Christmas-theme. There will be a Food & Drink Marquee
with seating and tables for snacks and refreshments. Santa
will open the Market on his sleigh pulled by real reindeer. There will also
be popular Children’s Funfair rides, whilst groups of buskers will
play seasonal music each day.
There are many other tourist attractions in and
around Harrogate District – together with a large number of hotels and guest
houses of all sizes that will accommodate your passengers in comfort. For full listings
