Sheffield Spotlight – Sheffield Christmas Markets
With Christmas fast approaching, you may be looking for something to get you into the festive mood. Nights out, early dinners with your flat, and games are all great ideas, but how about something better? How about Sheffield’s very own Christmas Markets!
This market has grown from a handful of cabins on the main shopping area of Sheffield to an entire christmas experience of 50 cabins. This year they have a Santa’s Grotto, Big Wheel, and many more attractions. The Christmas cabins cover Fargate, Town Hall Square and Peace Gardens with fantastic Christmas gifts, and plenty to keep you entertained.
Food and Drink
One of the main attractions to markets is always the food and drink options. German Sausages, crêpes, an abundance of sweet stalls, and the insanely popular Alpine Bar that often has queues right outside. Whether you want to grab a mid afternoon snack, or warm up your insides with an evening meal, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Not only do the markets have food options, but they are located in one of Sheffield’s best food districts, so the eateries literally surround you!
Often families will come to see Sheffield when collecting students to return home for Christmas, so why not host them for the night and take the opportunity to head down into town? There is a Santa’s Grotto which guarantees a meeting with the big man himself with a photo opportunity and top quality gifts for every child! Plenty to see and do, a simple walk around the markets could inspire some family fun-filled activities to pass the evening by.
If you’re a last minute shopper, then look no further. With over 50 stalls, you just knew that some of them would be packed with great Christmas gifts, and you aren’t wrong. Not only are the markets full of amazing Christmas presents waiting to be bought, but they are situated right between rows of shops that can cater for your last minute needs.
Whether you’re a student, family member, or just looking for something to do this Christmas, an evening at the Sheffield Christmas Markets is always a good idea.
