St Albans Christmas Market is one of the oldest regular markets in the UK, dating back to the 9th century. So what better City to hold a European-style Christmas Market?

The 25-day event will take place in and around the beautiful Vintry Garden – a walled garden adjacent to the magnificent 11th-century Cathedral – where visitors will enjoy browsing the high quality produce on offer in up to 60 traditional wooden chalets.

Entertainers, twinkly lights and plenty of Christmas cheer will add to the festive atmosphere – and don’t miss Carols on the Hour, every hour from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 17th December in the Cathedral too!

Visit the atmospheric St Albans Christmas Market, next to St Albans Cathedral:

  • Up to 40 stalls selling unique crafts, homewares, clothing, gifts and decorations
  • Santa in his grotto
  • Get your photo taken in the fun snow globe – great for Christmas gifts!
  • Spetacular entertainment in the Tinseltown Tent, including music, performance and art workshops for adults and children
  • Enjoy delicious food and drink, including bratwurst, hot pork rolls, mulled wine and hot chocolate
  • Look out for the Nutcracker soldiers!

The 2016 Christmas Market will run from Thursday 24th November to Sunday 18th December 2016
