What: Darlington Winter Wonderland

Where: Darlington, in county Durham

When: December 11-15

If you fancy checking out a ye olde Christmas market but can’t be stuffed going to Nuremberg or Bruges then Darlington could be the answer.

Bring on the roasted chestnuts, Christmas trees, mulled wine, mince pies, carol singing and fairground rides.
