Glasgow Christmas Market 2021

With the most wonderful time of the year fast approaching, what better way to immerse yourself in the festivities than with a Christmas Market in a beautiful city! With two markets to choose from in Glasgow, you'll be spoilt for choice, or why not visit both?

When is Glasgow Christmas Market this year?

Both of Glasgow's Christmas Markets attract thousands of visitors every year. The market at St Enoch Square hosts a beautifully dressed Christmas village of more than 50 seasonal chalets with some excellent local treats such as crispy duck rotisserie, bratwurst sausage, crepes, hog roast, and plenty more! The market runs from 21st November until 23rd December from 9am to 10pm every day! The market at George Square becomes global this year, with more than 50 traders from around the world selling some amazing artisan products and high quality crafts. There will even be a classic Helter Skelter, fun for all the family as well as a carousel ride to enjoy! We haven't forgotten the little ones either, as they can meet Santa at the giant advent calendar where he will be giving out treats to the children. You won't be able to miss the amazing 15m Christmas Tree right in the heart of the action! The market runs from 25th November until 31st December from 10am to 10pm every day!

Do you need to buy tickets to attend Glasgow Christmas Markets in 2021?

You won't need to buy any tickets to attend the Glasgow Christmas Markets, they are both completely free events! You can head down to either market 7 days a week for a warming glass of festive cheer or to find a unique festive gift for a loved one. After you've shopped and browsed till your heart is content, take a well-earned break in the beautifully crafted authentic German bars, serving traditional beers and Gluhwein, festive favourites! And don't forget about mulled wine and cider, there will be plenty on offer to keep you warm! As well as the Christmas Markets, the Christmas Light Switch On is rumoured to be returning for 2021, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Reasons to book a festive city break in Glasgow

Glasgow is a lively bustling place that is full of character and is known for being one of the best shopping destinations in the UK (outside of London).

If you fancy some of the tourist attractions then there are plenty to see in Glasgow, such as the Glasgow Cathedral, which runs the midnight mass on Christmas Eve as well as the Christmas Day service. Of course there are the local pantomimes running also providing you with festive cheer and laughter.
