After 1,000 years of a regular market, St Albans now has a Christmas one with up to 60 stalls. The event takes place in and around the beautiful Vintry Garden – a walled garden adjacent to the magnificent 11th-century St Albans Cathedral.
The 2016 Christmas Market will run from Thursday 24th November to Sunday 18th December 2016.
Visitors will enjoy browsing the high quality produce on offer in up to 60 traditional wooden chalets outside the Cathedral and in the Vintry Garden. The pretty Cathedral quarter sits right at the centre of a triangle of St Albans ‘oldest’ treasures: the only working Medieval Clock Tower; the oldest Public School in the country; and, for visitors to the market who fancy a pint of real ale, the oldest pub in the UK, The Fighting Cocks, just at the foot of the Abbey Orchard, a stone’s throw from the Cathedral.
Entertainers, twinkly lights and plenty of Christmas cheer will add to the festive atmosphere – and don’t miss Carols on the Hour, on the hour, every hour from 11.00 to 16.00 on the last Saturday before Christmas in St Albans Cathedral.
It’s easy to get here too. We’re just 22 minutes from London St Pancras, a short hop off the M1 and M25 motorways, within easy reach of London Luton and Heathrow airports.
Come and visit St Albans this festive season, and rediscover Christmas.
St Albans Christmas Market takes place outside St Albans Cathedral, accessed on foot via Waxhouse Gate (from High Street) or Sumpter Yard (from Holywell Hill).
