Enjoy a full day out sightseeing or Christmas shopping in the beautiful City of York
There’s something for everyone in York this Christmas. From family friendly activities and Santa Sightings to luxury Christmas dinners and traditional services.
This year, the hugely popular St. Nicholas Fair will return to York. The charming alpine chalets will once again line the streets with local businesses selling everything from handmade gifts to delicious treats.
With more attractions per square mile than any other UK city, you’ll be spoilt for choice with fun things to do in York. Whether you want to take in the majesty of the iconic York Minster, spend time in one of the fascinating museums; The Castle Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre, or discover the city’s grisly past at the York Dungeon, there’s an attraction to suit everyone.
Shopping in York is an experience in itself, with a web of winding streets flaunting a wide variety of wares. You’ll find gorgeous little independent shops selling everything from clothes to crystals, fabulous vintage stores, and High Street names.
Winner of the most picturesque street in Britain, the cobbled Shambles is an ideal place to start the day. It was originally a street of butchers shops and houses, but now York’s bustling centrepiece is thriving with art, books, knitwear and pastries. For fans of witches and wizards it’s worth noting that the street is also famous for being the inspiration for the film adaptation of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley and is home to three shops for brooms and potions! It’s perfectly placed to lead you on to the many fancy boutiques, gift shops and antique havens that lie in the streets beyond.
