Visit Great Yarmouth Christmas Markets

Great Yarmouth Christmas Markets will take place over weekends throughout December, starting from 30 November with the Great Yarmouth Christmas Fayre to 23 December to delight shoppers and excite families in the run up to Christmas.
Great Yarmouth Christmas Market

Experience the magic of the market

Over the four weekends, Great Yarmouth Market Square will be filled with beautifully decorated wooden chalets and gazebos housing all sorts of festive goodies. 

The first day for the Christmas Fayre, will coincide with Great Yarmouth's Christmas lights being switched on. Relax after a day of shopping, stay a little longer and enjoy live entertainment from The Beach Radio and a free fireworks display after the lights have been switched on. 

Visitors to the Christmas Fayre can enjoy live musical entertainment over the weekend with performances from Treble Clef, The Testosa-Tones and more. Children can enjoy the thrill of a funfair and an animated projection on a town centre building. 

The festivities continue over weekends throughout December, perfect for a Winter break.

Don't forget, there's free parking after 4pm every day and from 12noon on Wednesdays as well as all day on Sunday in selected Great Yarmouth Borough Council operated car parks, so you can save money on parking that you can spend on shopping for presents instead.
