Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in Cumbria 2017

It’s that time of year again where we start planning for Christmas. I just love a Christmas market.  There’s something magical about getting wrapped up, listening to carols, drinking mulled wine and buying treats and gifts for the festive season ahead.  I have included as many Christmas fairs and Christmas markets in Cumbria as possible, but please let me know about any I’ve missed and I will try to update.
