Coppergate Christmas Market and Santa's Grotto

About us

Santa Claus is coming to town - New for 2018!

Coppergate will be hosting it's very own Christmas market, along with Santa's Grotto and Christmas tree farm. From 15 November to Christmas Eve, you and your little ones can come and meet Santa in his beautiful Grotto in Coppergate right here in the heart of York. Meet a real elf, talk to Santa and leave with a wonderful gift and souvenir photo.

Santa’s elves will be opening the doors to his grotto daily from 10am to 6pm, and visitors are warmly invited to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

From 1 December, you'll also be able to buy a real Christmas tree thanks to Stockeld Park.
