What’s on in Surrey this Christmas
Christmas fairs and markets are the true heralds when it comes to spreading seasonal magic. The tradition dates back to the late Middle Ages but it still remains a beloved part of our culture to this day. With this in mind we’ve put together a list of what’s on in Surrey, Hampton Court and beyond so you can set aside some dates this year and join us in spreading a little Christmas cheer.
Whether you want to visit Hampton Court, London or Twickenham, hotels on your radar need to offer comfort and convenience. Our hotel excels at both – it’s part of what makes us the perfect option for a seasonal stay.
Running from the 7th – 9th of December the Hampton Court Annual Fair is the perfect destination for a little Christmas feasting. Complete with artisanal foods and drink, and sing-along classics from the Bandstand, Hampton Court Palace is the perfect place for feeling all the festivities with each year promising to be better than the last. And to top it off the Palace is located just a 6 minute walk from our hotel!
Expect delicious seasonal food from over 40 suppliers, merry festival-goers and even a visit from Santa. For the food-lovers among us, this market is ideal thanks to its varied offering that is perfect to warm you on a chilly evening. Running from the 24th-25th November and only a 45 minute drive from Mitre, the Priory Farm Festival is a market not to be missed if you’re after some unique stocking fillers.
Half an hours drive and you will arrive at the home of all things arts and crafts, Lightbox Fair is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and family. From jewellery to paintings and mulled wine to live music – this is a fantastic venue to soak in all the Christmas spirit this year. Visit the fair from the 1st-2nd December.
We’re conveniently located 35 minutes by train ride from Waterloo Station. Just a further 5 minute walk from the station and you’ll stumble upon the great Southbank Centre. See the Centre transform into a winter wonderland come the holiday-season. The Market hosts a wonderful array of stalls for all different kinds of gifts and more than that they cater to all ages with their music, craft, workshops, performances and more. The market runs from the 9th November until the 6th January, so you’ve got plenty of time to book in a visit.
