Norfolk’s Christmas Markets  

Christmas Markets is not necessarily something you would associate with Norfolk but we now have quite a few on the calendar and they are growing in popularity each year, attracting visitors and exhibitors from all over the Country. 

Christmas Markets are a must to get you into the Christmas spirit and with helping to find unique gifts that cannot be found on the High Street. It’s also a fantastic way of supporting independent small businesses. Below are five of our favourite Christmas Markets (but there are many more to explore)!

Deepdale Christmas Market

Located at Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale, on the North Norfolk Coast, the Deepdale Christmas Market has over 120 local artisans and producers. All willing to help you in finding the perfect gift or decoration that can not be found on the high street. They pride themselves on having something for every budget, every present list and every taste.

There are lots of food and drink stalls, including the Deepdale Cafe, pizzas, pies, crepes and not forgetting the mulled wine and minced pies to keep you all refuelled to continue with your browsing..
