Christmas Markets

Visit Nottinghamshire and you will discover a wide range of festive markets, selling everything from local produce to hand-crafted gifts and traditional treats. Whether you are looking for delightful stocking fillers - or a bespoke piece of jewellery to thrill someone special - you will find it at one of our markets.

Of course, visiting a market is a wonderful experience in itself. Many are held in some of Nottinghamshire's most picturesque locations and as you browse the wonderful stalls make sure you treat yourself to a seasonal mince pie and mulled wine.

A full list of Nottinghamshire's Christmas markets can be found here - but here are a few of our highlights.

  • Nottingham's Winter Wonderland (17h November - 31st December) is home to a traditional English market selling hand-crafted goods as well as seasonal treats.

  • Get ready for Christmas at the Holme Pierrepont Hall's Christmas fair (15th November - preview evening, 16th November - Christmas fair) with stalls from all over the country including luxurious candles by FiMi, children’s sleepwear by The Pyjama House, British grown flowers, Christmas wreaths and much more.

  • At Patchings Christmas Market (24th - 26th November) you will find more than 50 stalls selling items made by talented artists and crafts people.

  • The magical Welbeck Winter Weekend will once again take place at the Welbeck Estate from 24th to 26th November. A must for both foodies and art lovers alike this event will showcase over 100 artisan makers and give you the chance to browse handmade goods. Visitors can also look around the artists' studios.

  • Over the weekend of the 17th - 19th November, visitors to Nottingham can enjoy the Craft. Design. Contemporary. Christmas craft fair at Nottingham Contemporary, showcasing the works of some of the most imaginative designers around. And if you prefer to shop for Christmas gifts a bit earlier, then Lustre - a high profile fair at the Nottingham Lakeside Arts is taking place on 4th and 5th November.

Nottingham Tourism Centre

Great local gift ideas are always available throughout the season at the Nottingham Tourism Centre, just off the city’s Old Market Square on Smithy Row.

Here you will find an array of artisan produce, including honey, preserves, freshly-roasted coffee and locally-milled oats and museli. This can all be hand-wrapped as a hamper.

For something truly special choose a piece of beautifully-presented Nottingham lace or if you are looking for stocking fillers for your little outlaw, you will find Robin Hood hats and costumes.

The Tourism Centre will also be open between 11am - 5pm on the three Sundays leading up to Christmas.
