Celebrate Christmas 2016 in Nottinghamshire
With its festive markets, boutiques and independent shops and sparkling events spending Christmas in Nottinghamshire is a truly magical experience. From ice-skating to family pantomimes and theatrical extravaganzas, not to mention the chance to meet Santa Claus in his Grotto, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the run-up to Christmas 2016.
One of the highlights of the festive programme is the Winter Wonderland in Nottingham's Old Market Square. Browse the traditional market stalls, treat yourself to a warming mulled wine or skate on the ice rink in the centre of the square. Just a short walk away, at Intu Broadmarsh, you can also visit Santa at his festive Grotto.
Another firm favourite of the season is the Christmas Art & Food Market which takes place at the beautiful Welbeck Estate in north Nottinghamshire. During the weekend, the Welbeck Farm Shop will be showcasing some of the area's finest local produce, include ales, cheeses, bread and chocolates made on the estate. At the nearby Harley Gallery you will be able to pick up unique handmade Christmas presents.
Many of our attractions will also be open between Christmas and New Year if you want to work off some of those treats during the holiday.
