Our Guide to Christmas Markets in the North East

Updated: Nov 2, 2022




We love a good rummage around a Christmas market and thankfully, there are LOADS to choose from in the North East this year. I much prefer to get gifts for my family that are locally produced/handmade. There's already quite a selection of markets to choose from but I am still waiting for more to release the details so watch this space.

Here's the list so far.
