St Albans knows a thing or two about markets, having one of the oldest regular markets in the UK, dating back to the 9th century. So what better city to hold a European-style Christmas Market?
St Albans would like to extend a very warm welcome to visitors of its first Christmas Market, and it promises to be a magical and unforgettable experience.
The 24-day event will take place around the magnificent 11th-century St Albans Cathedral and in the beautiful Vintry Gardens – a walled garden adjacent to the Cathedral, in which will be a special Made in Beds, Bucks & Herts section.
Visitors will enjoy browsing the high quality produce on offer in 40 traditional wooden chalets around the east end of the Cathedral and into 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!
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.
