Christmas Fairs and Markets in Surrey
It’s that time of year when the serious build-up to Christmas begins. Although the festive season seems to start earlier every year, it’s November when everything starts proper. The Christmas lights and tree go up. Every shop plays traditional and favourite festive songs.
This November and December, there are various must-attend Christmas markets and fairs across Surrey. To help you find some presents in time for the holidays, WH Cox has put together some of our top Christmas fairs and markets for 2017.

The iconic landmark will host over seventy stalls selling unique gifts, decorations, sweets, cakes, wines, food hampers and many of locally produced crafts.

Priory Farm Christmas Food Festival – another November event, this time it’s in Redhill for the Priory Farm Christmas Food Festivals.

There are gourmet food gifts, award-winning ales and beers, Beckett’s Gin and other famous brands that call Surrey home. Now in its ninth year, this food festival is one of the most important events in the UK’s food and drink calendar.
Kingston Christmas Market – the Kingston Christmas Market begins on the 16th of November through until the 31st of December. This market is not your ordinary event. Traditional wooden cabins line Kingston upon Thames’ ancient marketplace, which adds to the atmosphere of Yuletide festivities. Festive music plays throughout the market, as you browse the various Christmas treats on offer. There are fairground rides for the kids, mulled wine to keep the adults warm, and there are Christmas craft workshops at the Alpine Village. And what Christmas market would be complete without an appearance from Santa Claus and his elves?
Tips for Relocating to Surrey –
One of the best things anyone can do if planning a relocation to a new area is to do lots of research. Get to know the place you want to move to so that it’s easier to integrate when you arrive. There are two ways to do this. The first thing you can do is go online and do some research on various places you like the look of. Make a list of potential locations and match that with property types, such as three-bed houses.
Now that you’ve done some initial research on areas and properties, the next thing to do is check what sort of amenities and entertainment each area has to offer. Moreover, it’s important that you move to somewhere that suits your needs and your tastes. If you like the cinema, then make sure there’s one in the town or city you’re moving to. Transport links and things like schools and healthcare are also relevant, so check online to see what options are available.
