Enjoy York's charm at this annual Christmas market. York is the city to be in this holiday season since the air is filled with the aromas of great cuisine and spiced mulled wine. As you stroll down the famous St. Nicholas Fair, you'll be able to discover a bunch of authentic items from local artisans and experienced vendors (whose works are also showcased at the Made in Yorkshire Yuletide Village).

Don't forget to walk around the various mountain chalets on Parliament Street (it's also a great place for buying traditional Christmas souvenirs). And when you get hungry, head toward St. Sampson's Square for delicious Christmas food and comforting mulled wine. Lastly, take a slide down the popular Helter Skelter and take some decent photos there.

During the holiday season, the city's restaurants, shops, and attractions are covered with themed decorations. This kind of atmosphere offers a delightful winter experience, with an extraordinary selection of seasonal events to join. Stay longer than a day to fully enjoy the ideal Christmas ambiance. Remember: if you're unsure where to go, head towards Kings Square–the place where all the fun usually takes place. You may also want to know that York gets extremely busy this time of year, so we recommend you to book your housing in advance.
