Festive stalls, live music and hand-made crafts at The Bishop’s Palace’s Christmas Artisan Market

  • 4th – 5th November 2023
  • 10am


The popular Christmas Artisan Market returns to The Bishop’s Palace in Wells on 4th-5th November 2023 (10am-4pm) as the medieval rooms of the Palace, upstairs and downstairs, are filled with a variety of enticing artisan stalls.

The popular event will give visitors the chance to purchase hand-made and unique gifts that could be the perfect inspiration for those difficult-to-buy-for friends and family, whilst also supporting local small businesses from the South West of England.

There’ll be plenty of gift inspiration, decorations, cards and live musical performances in the inspirational setting of the medieval Palace building.

And if all the shopping leaves visitors in need of refreshment, the Bishop’s Table café will be serving a seasonal menu with its picturesque views over the croquet lawn.

The event is a fundraising event in aid of The Bishop’s Palace which is owned by the Church Commissioners and operated by The Palace Trust, a registered charity which manages the site as a heritage visitor attraction.

Reduced price day admission tickets include access to the Artisan Market, the Chapel and to the 14 acres of RHS partner gardens.

Tickets can be purchased by telephone 01749 988 111 or online HERE
