Christmas Markets

Published on 20 Nov 2015 by Gwion Llwyd

There is nothing better to get you in the festive mood than a trip to a Christmas Market. It’s such a lovely feeling being all wrapped up ambling around the stalls drinking mulled wine and eating mince pies.

There are lots of small local Christmas markets and fairs taking place, but the two most notable ones that are worth going out of your way to visit are the Portmerion Food and Craft Fair and the Llandudno Christmas Fayre.


Always very popular, this is a wonderful place to go. The food on offer is amazing; lots of stalls promoting local brands which when you see them altogether makes you realise just how many great products are coming out of the area. As well as the food, the gifts here are lovely; original, quirky and definitely the type of things you won’t find else where. There are also some lovely skin care brands which again are locally made.

Alongside all of the stalls are cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, bands and choirs and of course Father Christmas will be in his grotto!

Christmas is magical and so the venue couldn’t be better; the magical Portmeirion offers you a chance to get away from it all and indulge yourself in a bit of Christmas cheer.

Due to its popularity, the Llandudno Christmas Fayre has now extended from Madoc street into Trinity Square making it one of the biggest Christmas fayres in North Wales. Set over 4 days in the town centre, the fayre takes on a Dickensian theme and there are over 150 stalls offering gifts, crafts, demonstrations and of course Father Christmas in his grotto.

There is a big focus on food and drink this year, showcasing many of the local microbreweries. Great Orme Brewery of Llandudno will be hosting a bar serving 10 local beers on draft alongside great entertainment that will be running from 11.00am – 7.00pm.
