Around 40 wooden chalets will sell a wide range of festive gifts, stocking fillers and decorations as well as arts and crafts. The Christmas Market will be open daily
(see hours below) with an extra "street" of designer-maker chalets each Thursday to Sunday. See who's trading at the 2017 St Albans Christmas market
Entertainment, twinkly lights and plenty of Christmas cheer will add to the festive atmosphere. At the heart of the market will be the Tinseltown Tipi with music, activities and workshops, and a food court where people can take a break from shopping.
Don't miss Carols on the Hour, every hour, on the hour from 11am to 4pm on 16th December 2017 at St Albans Cathedral.
The pretty Cathedral quarter sits right at the centre of a triangle of St Albans 'oldest' treasures: the only working Medieval Clock Tower; the oldest Public School in the country; and the oldest pub in the UK, Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, just at the foot of the Abbey Orchard, a stone's throw from the Cathedral.
It's easy to get here too. We're just 22 minutes from London St Pancras, a short hop off the M1 and M25 motorways, within easy reach of London Luton and Heathrow airports.
Come and visit St Albans this festive season, and rediscover Christmas.
