It’s not too late to join us at Durham City Christmas Festival: Fri 3rd – Sun 5th Dec 2021
A coach trip to Durham Christmas Festival is a must – combine a visit to the World Heritage Site of Durham Cathedral and Castle, with one of the North’s finest shopping festivals … perfectly timed at the start of the Christmas season.

Arriving by coach means you’ll be dropped at a city centre location, and from there you can make the most of four markets in the heart of the city. The Craft & Gift Marquee on Palace Green in front of the Cathedral is an Aladdin’s cave of gift ideas and Christmas treats (over 100 stalls). Make sure you purchase discounted entrance tickets to this marquee in advance via the festival website*.

The Cloisters of Durham Cathedral hosts our Regional Producers’ Market where you’ll discover artisan food and drink producers, Durham’s Market Hall is open with more than 40 varied independent businesses, and the Market Place also hosts a Festive Market, with plenty of streetfood vendors if you’re feeling peckish.

Alongside the shopping, you’re guaranteed to feel truly Christmassy as the city fills with carolling, performing, and special events. Our website* has full details allowing you to plan your visit in advance.

Come and meet hundreds of traders - each one unique - it's a great Christmas shopping opportunity
