York is a buzzing Christmas destination, now complete with the relatively new York’s Festive Fayre to compliment the existing Christmas activities. Both the St Nicholas Fayre and the York’s Festival Fayre are situated in Parliament Street.

With market traders adorned in traditional clothes from eras past there is a sense of stepping into a scene from a Dicken’s tale, which adds to the incredibly atmospheric scenery that makes York such an historic location.

With carol singers and the smells of traditional Christmas foods it’s impossible not feel in the Christmas spirit browsing the crammed stalls.

Things you may want to know :

Number of stalls: St Nicholas Fayre: 100, York’s Festive Fayre: 50

Train Station: York Railway Station

Coach Parking: Coaches are not allowed inside the city walls except for a part of Station Road. Coach Parking is at Union Terrace Coach Park and George's Field Coach Park.
