This Christmas, be ready for some new festive experiences along with your shopping. Here are some of the best places in Newcastle to heighten your festive experience this holiday season and explore some unusual gifts for your loved ones.
Fenwick, Northumberland Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
Fenwick department store is as famous for its Christmas Window as it is for its luxury fashion, beauty, food and gifts. Every Christmas, the company unveils its Christmas Window with a new theme.
This year, the Window unveiled a display titled “We’re Walking in the Air”. It brings to life the story of the children’s picture book “The Snowman” by Raymond Briggs. The display describes the story of James, a young boy who discovers that the snowman he built has come to life.
The journey of James and his snowman are brought to life through rich settings, animated characters and great music.
Enjoy the Display and also explore Fenwick’s range of fantastic gifts for the Season!
The Christmas Village, Newcastle
Find all things Christmas here! Set on the Times Square, the Christmas Village welcomes you with several attractive festive elements including good food, music and Christmas cheer. The festive atmosphere is currently on and will continue until January 5, 2019.
Overhead twinkling lights welcome you as you enter the Village. Festive smells of mulled wine and chestnuts roasted on log fires fill the air inside the Village.
There is a German food village serving authentic German street food, a huge Christmas tree, open log pits, a wide range of wheat beers served wonderfully in steins, an outdoor ice rink (Newcastle’s only one) and a craft market selling wonderful gifts by local traders.
