Head to Hillsborough for festive seasonal cheer at the Royal Hillsborough Christmas Market.
Stroll through the market set up along the historic setting of The Dark Walk and Hillsborough Fort. The market will be filled with the sounds, sights and tastes of Christmas with an eclectic mix of independent and artisan food producers, artists, designers of handmade crafts, health and beauty and homewares.
The grounds of Hillsborough Fort provide a unique background to enjoy a hot drink and bite to eat. Delicious aromas will be floating through the winter air from a range of gourmet street-food and drink vendors each with their own distinctively seasonal menus developed using the best of Northern Ireland produce.
There will be plenty to enchant the child in us all. Santa himself just might find time in his busy schedule to pop in for a chat and there will be interactive seasonal crafts with Santa’s elves.
The independent shops and eateries of the Royal Hillsborough village will be joining in the festive cheer so a visit to the Christmas Market is a perfect opportunity to explore this idyllic and historic village. Keep an eye out on the Visit Lisburn Castlereagh and website for more of the twinkling detail and who is trading each day.
