Christmas Markets in Surrey | Things to Do 2023

Christmas markets are such a big part of the festive season and we always try to go to one or two each year. They’re a fantastic place to spend time as a family or with friends and it’s lovely to soak up the festive atmosphere, grab a hot drink and appreciate the lights, smells and sounds of Christmas as well as doing some holiday shopping and really make the most of the holiday season. 

As much as we love travelling to the big Christmas markets like Winchester Christmas Market, Bath Christmas Market or Winter Wonderland in London, it’s lovely to spend time closer to home. So I thought I’d put together all the Surrey Christmas markets, holiday markets  and Christmas fairs to give you some festive inspiration in your local area.
