Take a minute to explore the streets adjoining the Market Square and you will discover the delightful Castlegate area. Here you will find a wide range of independent shops and businesses and a pretty courtyard full of festive surprises. Can you find an Elf?

On Christmas Market weekend we have lined up street entertainers, music and a visit from a special VIP who is going to park his sleigh in Green Dragon Yard and say ‘Yo-Ho Hello’.
