Harrogate & York’s St. Nicholas Fayre

With Christmas Shopping in Leeds!

Enjoy a delightful weekend visiting York’s famous Christmas Fayre Harrogate is one of England’s greatest spa towns, famed for its mineral springs which were discovered in 1571. Harrogate’s Pump Rooms and Turkish Baths are a reminder of yesteryear as are it’s resplendent Valley Gardens and Victorian walkways and arcades. York is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and the rich history of York stretches out before you as you walk along the city walls, the longest in England and narrow shopping lanes. Standing out above all is the famous York Minster, the largest Gothic church in England.

The St.Nicholas Fayre has become firmly established as one of York’s most popular annual events and provides the
visitor with the opportunity to experience the wonderful atmosphere of the Christmastide Market. The Fayre is held in the very heart of the city and offers speciality shops, market stalls, street theatres and a host of festive fun not forgetting York’s excellent shopping facilities. Outside markets are held in Parliament Street, St.Sampsons Square and Coppergate whilst York’s grand medieval Guild Hall provides a home for “ Made in Yorkshire”with artists and crafts from across the region. The magnificent medieval town house, Barley Hall presents a special medieval market with live crafting, mulled wine and costumed traders and St. William’s College houses an arts and crafts market for fine hand-made items not to be found in the shops. The festive atmosphere is enhanced by carol singers and buskers who flock to the city to perform over the weekend to thousands of festive shoppers.
