Leeds Kirkgate Market this Christmas

This Christmas come and discover a treasure trove of unique gifts at Leeds Kirkgate Market from fresh chestnuts and cranberries for your Christmas day to smoked salmon for that extra special Boxing Day brunch. Kirkgate Market is open seven days a week from the start of December until Christmas Eve, offering the best in quality, variety and value for money. Leeds Markets will be a hub of festive spirit with a whole host of exciting activities alongside brilliant Christmas shopping!

Come and visit the M&S Market Stall, the birthplace of Marks & Spencer and follow the award winning M&S Leeds Heritage Trail. Winner of the Group Travel Award for innovation in Tourism 2013. Travelling from past to present, the trail takes you on a journey through the rich heritage of Leeds, and the Victorian Gardens open Christmas Market. The trail finishes at the Marks in Time Exhibition at the M&S Company archive, White Rose award finalist for small visitor attraction 2013. Whether you take the trail as a self-guided walk, or book an expert tour guide you’ll be finding out more about the fascinating story of British high-street favourite that began life at Leeds Kirkgate Market.

There’s a whole lot more going on!!

Every Saturday in December we’ll have adorable live reindeer on the outdoor market to set the Christmassy scene alongside our giant Christmas tree. They’ll be brass bands playing traditional carols and the market will be decked out with delightful decorations including the M&S Christmas Clock Tree. Don’t forget our free Shop & Drop service which allows you to do all your festive shopping then leave it in our “chiller” room until a more convenient time of day (perhaps whilst you’re having a cup of tea!) For coach bookings over 30 customers we will provide free mince pies and hot punch in our hospitality suite which overlooks the spectacular 1904 market hall when booked in advance.
