All the fun of the fair at the St Albans Christmas Market
There is a just a couple of weeks until St Albans Cathedral plays host to a wonderful Christmas market in the walled Vintry Garden in the grounds of the Abbey. In traditional European style, there will be the whole range of Christmas goodies to buy from over 60 stalls selling gifts, decorations, a hot toddy or two and a vast selection of foodie fare for young and old.
There is plenty of entertainment too with street performers and Carols on the Hour in the Cathedral on the last Saturday before Christmas from 11.00am to 4.00pm.
Starting on Thursday 26th November with a launch party, the Christmas market is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am to 6pm, Thursdays 11am - 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 6pm until Sunday 20th December.
The regular market in St Albans has taken place since the 9th century, so the City has one of the oldest markets in the UK and a tradition of welcoming visitors from far and wide to the heart of the historic town. We know this year’s Christmas market will add to the Christmas spirit.
