Christmas Market 2018

Friday 7 December 2018 - Sunday 9 December 2018
All Day

Auckland Castle

The popular Christmas Market will return to the grounds of Auckland Castle from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 December 2018. Visitors will be spoilt for choice, with artisan craftspeople and regional producers offering distinctive gifts and speciality food and drink.

Alicia Simpson, Visitor Experience Officer, and Lisa Holden, Head of Retail, will be taking some of the hassle out of Christmas shopping by offering visitors gift wrap kits and a drop-in wrapping service for a small fee, meaning market-goers can enjoy some time to treat themselves while their purchases are taken care of by the team.

For a double dose of festive cheer, shoppers can visit No.42’s Christmas Makers Market, taking place on the same weekend, where regional artists and makers will be selling a unique array of gifts.
