Devon Christmas Markets
It’s that time of year again! Make Christmas shopping enjoyable by visiting one of the Christmas markets. Or if you’re already organised, there’s no excuse needed to go along and drink mulled wine (or mulled cider here in the West Country) and soak up the atmosphere.
Exeter Christmas Market
On the Cathedral Green. 19th Nov – 18th Dec.
Despite recent extensive, and infamous, fire damage to the Cathedral Green’s Royal Clarence Hotel, the Christmas market is being held as usual. A continental style market with crafts, gifts and food & drink housed in wooden mini-chalets. The market features stallholders both local, from across the UK, and from Europe.
