Christmas Markets

Aberdeen Christmas Village

For the past few years (excusing the covid festive periods), Aberdeen Inspired, a business improvement district collective, has hosted the stunning Aberdeen Christmas Village. In previous years they have provided a range of curated produce, from locally made alcohol to beautifully handcrafted tokens for friends and family. Hoping to be located on Broad Street from Thursday, 17th November, until 31st December 2022, the event promises to provide a festive extravaganza for all the family.

This event also uses its platform to fundraise for charity, with previous events providing an astonishing £15,000 for Charlie House, a local children’s charity. There will be plenty to eat and drink with the promise of festivities each weekend.

Tea Green Festive Market

Situated in Aberdeen Art Gallery, this indoor market will offer an experience like no other. The market will host an excellent selection of work, including cosy textiles, sparkling jewellery, gorgeously functional ceramics, quirky illustrations & so much more!

With 50 independent creative businesses exhibiting over the weekend, this is the perfect place to find all of those unique & special gifts!

Outdoor Events

Although the weather may feel a little chillier, staying outside can still feel warm with the many events that Aberdeen offers.

Hunt for the Lost Toys – Christmas Nature Trail

Twelve beautiful sculptures will be placed at various locations across the city to be found as part of a family trail. The trail will run from Thursday, the 1st – Saturday, 24th December.

Seek these impressive statues, created by local chainsaw carver Garry Shand, out, and this year they even offer an interactive function with the help of QR codes to make them even more magical.

Explore the Parks

Aberdeen is home to many beautiful walks and parks, each offering its own attractions, from the Winter Gardens within Duthie Park to the stunning landscape of Hazelhead park. Although many of the attractions are reduced through the winter, it still offers a great walk as you meander along the many trails and paved paths. There are cafes to grab a warm drink and spectacular trails to enjoy the park’s winter aesthetics. Below are three of our favourites in the city.

  • Duthie Park – Polmuir Road, Aberdeen AB11 7TH
  • Hazelhead Park – Hazlehead Avenue, Aberdeen AB15 8BE
  • Seaton Park – Don Street, Aberdeen, Scotland AB24 1XS

Christmas Carol Concerts

If you enjoy keeping in the festive spirit, you can’t miss the cheerful carol concert hosted by the Capriccio choir.

Located in the David Welch Winter Gardens at Duthie Park, you can sing along with all your favorite carols. The event is free, but donations are suggested for the Foodbank Appeal.

Spaces are limited, and it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis. These will occur on Saturday, 17th December, at 11 am, 12:15 pm and 3 pm.

Christmas Shopping in the City

Of course, at this time of year, you will be hunting for unique gifts for your friends and family. Luckily, Aberdeen is home to hundreds of shops guaranteeing the perfect trinket for your loved ones. The most popular shopping location is within Union Square. This stunning modern shopping centre is open from 9 until 8 pm, with options for late-night dining and has everything you need to fill underneath the Christmas tree. It offers long-stay parking and most of the usual big brand stores such as the official apple store, H&M, Levi’s and Chisholm Hunter, a stunning jeweller. Union Square will provide everything you are looking for under one roof.

If you prefer hopping from shop to shop, then don’t despair. From Market Street to Union Street, there are ample shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. When it comes to shopping, Aberdeen City centre is one of the best places in the North East.
