Christmas at York Museum Gardens

As Christmas approaches, York City Center turns into a winter wonderland of festive cheer through additions such as Thor’s tipi, the ‘Snowy Shambles’, St. Nicholas fair and the huge Christmas tree and lights in St. Helen’s Square. However, this year a brand new and very exciting attraction is opening to bring after-dark magic to the city, through Christmas at the Museum gardens.

The Museum Gardens are being transformed into a Christmas-Themed illuminated trail filled with colour, light and music set against the beautiful backdrop of St. Mary’s Abbey and the Yorkshire Museum. Alongside the mesmerizing trail, you can get into the festive cheer on board a vintage funfair ride or enjoying a delicious warming pie from the award winning Yorkshire Pudding Pie Company  meanwhile Children will be treated to colourful face painting and hidden Christmas messages during a unique game of hide and seek. To top off your experience in true Christmas spirit, you may treat yourself to a proper festive treat of mulled wine, hot chocolate or toasted marshmallows as you enjoy the gardens.
The attraction is open from the 16th of November to the 1st of January, timed from 4:45 until 9:30 daily! Enjoy!
