The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in North East England 2021

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.

Christmas markets are a wonderful place to shop for Christmas gifts, foodie treats or to get started on creating a Magical Christmas Eve Box.
