Drop-off and Pick-up slots and Parking for coaches are only available if booked in advance. Pedestrians are admitted FREE of charge. Coaches are charged for access and parking.

Our 8th Harrogate Christmas Market will be held in the Town Centre from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th November 2019. Admission is FREE for pedestrians and the site is wheelchair accessible. It is not recommended to bring dogs due to the large crowds expected.

This four-day Harrogate Christmas Market will be a very large event, comparable with longer established Christmas Markets in other northern towns such as Durham, Lincoln and York. It will be a high quality upmarket event with a traditional Yorkshire theme.  It will attract many visitors to Harrogate to see the Christmas Lights and enjoy the town centre’s excellent shopping and hospitality facilities.

There will be about 200 stalls, including chalets and market stalls of various sizes, a large Crafts & Gifts Marquee offering quality merchandise with a Christmas-theme. There will be a Food & Drink Marquee with seating and tables for snacks and refreshments. Santa will open the Market on his sleigh pulled by real reindeer. There will also be popular Children’s Funfair rides, whilst groups of buskers will play seasonal music each day. 

There are many other tourist attractions in and around Harrogate District – together with a large number of hotels and guest houses of all sizes that will accommodate your passengers in comfort. For full listings click here

If you would like to arrange a longer stay package for your clients we recommend you get in touch with the Harrogate Tourist Information body Visit Harrogate, who can co-ordinate a package for you.
