Christmas on the North Norfolk Coast

Warning: This feature is now out of date

The highlight of the festive season on the North Norfolk Coast is the infamous Deepdale Christmas Market on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September. This year they've decided to really push the boat out in the name of all things festive and make something of the whole period through December until the big day itself.

However, the weekend of the 7 and 8 December isn’t the only time to go shopping at Dalegate Market. The shops are open every day, midweek & weekends, until Christmas Eve, with inspiring Christmas present ideas and lots of festive cheer.

If you’ve already experienced the crowds in Norwich and other towns, then you know you want a better shopping experience somewhere calmer. For the ultimate chilled out Christmas shopping experience, head to Dalegate Market for Early Bird Christmas Shopping on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December.   Why not combine with a walk on the beach and lunch in a local pub?


The Christmas Market offers over 70 stalls selling a wide variety of unique presents, decorations, food and drink. This year there are stalls in 3 large marquees and St Mary's Church, with entertainment throughout the weekend and plenty of delicious lunch options. 

On Tuesday 10 December, the shops of Dalegate Market are offering Late Night Christmas Shopping until 8pm, so pop over for a mince pie, a glass of mulled wine and some truly inspiring Christmas present ideas. 

The chaos in the City will only get worse, so you can Beat The Crowds on Saturday 14 and 15 December by doing your Christma shopping at Dalegate Market. When the panic sets in and you really need help and inspiration for that perfect gift, the friendly staff of Dalegate Market will help you with your Last Minute Christmas Shopping over the weekend of Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 December. 

Of course, the shops are open every day – both midweek and weekends – so you can visit any day in the run up to Christmas to get all your presents sorted. Escape the hustle and bustle of the big towns and cities and take a relaxed trip to the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.
