York Christmas Market 2023 – St Nicholas Fair
York Christmas Market is set to return from 16th November to 22nd December 2023. The famous alpine chalets will return to line Parliament Street and St Sampson’s Square, creating a festive wonderland of local traders and artisan products.
Don’t forget to skip through to Shambles Market, home to a wide range of local independent traders selling everything from Yorkshire flat caps to delicious cakes to incredible hand-crafted gifts. Don’t miss the Shambles Food Court either, where there’s a range of street food on offer (we’re big fans of Krep Truck, serving tasty filled crepes and galettes, and The Dark Horse Espresso which makes some of the best coffee in York).
Top tips if you’re visiting York Christmas Market with kids: avoid peak times as it can get very busy. Go early or late (we like to go in the evening if we can, for extra excitement) and combine it with a wander around the city to see the lights. The best way to get into York at Christmas (or any other time of year, for that matter) is by public transport. We’re big fans of York Park and Ride.
