The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in North East England 2019

I can't believe how quickly Christmas Market season has come around. As usual, I'm sharing my guide to the region's best Christmas Markets. I did ask via my Social Media pages for recommendations but if you missed that post and would like your event to be added, please add the details as a comment on this post and I'll add the details when I can. 

The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in North East England 2019

Please remember that this post is written in advance and events can change/be cancelled even at the last minute. Always double-check details with organisers before heading out. 

Over the years I've really enjoyed visiting Christmas Markets and spending my cash supporting local and small businesses. I'm going to try and do this as much as I can this year so will definitely be visiting a fair few of these markets myself in the coming months. Please note, this post was updated in September 2019. New markets will be added as their dates are announced. Don't forget to join our North East Christmas Facebook Group here and let me know which markets you'll be attending this year in the comments.
