This year Newcastle plays host to some special Christmas Markets, providing the ideal opportunity to sample some festive treats whilst browsing the many stalls for inspirational gift ideas.

Continental Christmas Market
30 November to 1 December
Between 10am and 3pm

The Continental Market brings gourmet foods and a very real taste of Europe. You can sample a currywurst from Germany, waffles from Holland, paella from Spain and crepes; both sweet and savoury from France along with lots of fabulous gift ideas. If you are looking for something a little different this year to give family /friends.  I guarantee you will not be going home empty handed!

Great place to visit for some locally crafted gift items. Also for those with little ones a visit to Santa's Grotto is a must (call to book on: 0191 281 2082) and see the Christmas donkeys at Pet's Corner. Music and entertainment will be provided throughout the day.
