Southampton Christmas Market
16th November – 2nd January 
Above Bar Pedestrian area

Southampton Christmas Market returns for 2023 with a selection of festive stalls selling Christmas gifts plus food, drink and entertainment from 16 November onwards.

The traditional market features individually designed alpine chalets with more than 30 independent stallholders offering a range of hand-made, authentic gifts including candles, clothing and jewellery as well as handcrafted Christmas decorations.
S&D Leisure is planning more Christmas magic with a light projection show, high-octane rides and a Christmas Fun House.
And if all the excitement makes you hungry, there is a mouth-watering menu of international dishes to enjoy, from delicious Dutch pancakes and doughnuts to Yorkshire pudding wraps and German sausages (including vegetarian and vegan options).

The spectacular light projection show will light up the historic Bargate monument and will run every 30 minutes, between 5pm and 9.30pm each night from 17 November until 24 December.

The Christmas market will also feature one of the UK’s tallest Ferris wheel and the ride AtmosFear, which swings riders up to 80ft into the sky, whilst spinning them around 360 degrees.
The Christmas Fun House will offer smaller children's rides and there will be a Santa’s Workshop on the southern side of the Bargate.
