St Albans Christmas Market

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 Christmas Market, a magical and unforgettable experience.

List of Exhibitors

We've done our best to find a fantastic selection of traders bringing you the best
of British-made and international wares. We've focused on the quirky, the handmade, the unique and individual and we hope you’ll find something for everyone on your list, from pocket-money toys and stocking fillers to beautiful statement pieces for your home.

More vendors will be added each day, so check back to see what’s in store, and join us from the 27th November for 25 days of festive shopping, with a brilliant programme of seasonal entertainment for all the family.

While the market is on we’ll be using social media to update you on stalls that are newly arrived, and any that you should hurry to catch before they leave. Please ‘like’ St Albans Christmas Market on Facebook or follow us on Twitter - we’re @StAXmasMarket – to stay up-to-date with the latest developments.

There will be live acoustic and acapella music slots regularly throughout the market, showcasing the talent of indie musicians from around the region and adding some Christmassy magic. The popular ‘Carols on the Hour' will take place at the Cathedral on the last Saturday of the market - Saturday 20 December. The choristers will delight visitors with a selection of popular carols every hour throughout the day, offering a welcome break from shopping, and a treat for music-lovers.
