Get in the mood for Christmas and stock up on some festive goodies at Canterbury's Christmas Market!

If you’re looking for original, innovative gifts or just need some inspiration, a wander around Canterbury’s Christmas Market is a delightful way to spend an hour and will certainly get you in the mood for shopping, wrapping, and preparing for the season.

Canterbury is establishing itself as a leading Christmas Market destination! Thousands of festive shoppers flock to Canterbury to soak up the sounds and smells of the 70+ wooden cabins, located between St George’s Street and Whitefriars Shopping Centre.

Selling everything from local food and drink, candles, handmade stocking fillers, games and toys, Christmas decorations, jewellery and a vast array of gifts from around the world. Shoppers can also enjoy live music on some dates to get them in the festive mood and there’s a special place for little ones to meet with Santa and the elves in his Grotto, from November 30th.

There will be a Golden Ticket hunt to encourage shoppers to keep their eyes open. There’s also an invitation to children (and parents) to take part in a fantastic FREE book event. Hunt out the Christmas themed books, take them home to read and, if you want, hide them again for someone else to find. Take a photo of the books you enjoy the most and share to spread the word!

The market is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, Saturday 9amto 6pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm.
