Magical Leeds Christmas

Experience the magic of a Leeds Christmas.

At this time of year our city sparkles as the streets come to life with Christmas Markets, cosy tipis, spectacular shows, twinkling lights, ice-skating, hot chocolates and traditional fairground rides.

And this year, we’re looking forward to the return of Leeds Christmas Markets – the city centre will be transformed with a takeover of traditional, timber stalls with artisan goods and handcrafted treats from international, national and local traders.

This is in addition the ever-popular Millennium Square Christmas experiences!

Leeds is the merriest place to be this Christmas.

Take time with friends, family and loved ones to make every experience count whether that’s gift-shopping in our breath-taking Victorian arcades, seeing a world-class performance in one of our theatres or taking in the lights and grabbing a mulled wine from one of the many cosy winter garden tipis and pubs and restaurants across the city centre.

Our city centre is packed full of fantastic festive food and drink to keep you fuelled through cold winter evenings, with everything from award-winning dining, to keep you fuelled through cold winter evenings and street food to traditional, cosy pubs, buzzing cocktail bars and independent breweries.

And on clear winter days you can make memories with grand days out to historic houses and country estates to enjoy beautifully decorated rooms in breath-taking gardens and landscapes.

Whether it’s Christmas markets, entertainment, shopping, festive food and drink, historic houses, winter walks or family favourites – make it a Magical Leeds Christmas.
