York is officially in full festive swing with lights illuminating the centre as well as the start of the St Nicholas Fair.

City centre visitors can enjoy new displays such as a Christmas village at York Minster, the ‘Tree of Light’ at the Eye of York and a ‘meadow’ of Christmas trees in Exhibition Square.

Those wanting to send Santa a letter can now drop them off at Santa’s Postbox in Museum Gardens. Families can also enjoy the ‘York Quest’ app to find seven Christmas characters hidden around York’s historic streets.
