With the festive season fast approaching, we take a look at some of best places to get some Christmas shopping done in Oxford. What’s more all of our recommendations can be reached on an Oxford Bus Company service!
Broad Street Christmas Market
Date: 13th – 22nd December 2013
Location: Broad Street (Take Oxford bound city and park&ride services)
The Broad Street Christmas Market returns in December with 40 beautifully decorated wooden stalls. Expect a wonderful selection of Christmas gifts and seasonal treats to keep you warm whilst walking around.
St Giles Christmas Market
Date: 22nd November 2013
Location: St Giles (Take Oxford bound city and park&ride services)
As part of the Christmas Light Festival, the St Giles Market boasts 80 stalls, selling hot food and drink as well as unique art, crafts and Christmas gifts.
Old Fire Station Shop – Late Night Shopping and Jewellery Showcase
Date: 5th December 2013 (5.30-8pm)
Location: Gloucester Green (Take Oxford bound city and park&ride services).
Treat yourself to a night of enjoyable Christmas shopping! Swap the hustle and bustle of the high street for a glass of fizz and the chilled out atmosphere of the Shop at the Old Fire Station.
You can either use the night to browse our usual stock of over 100 artists and designers, or check out our jewellery showcase.
For one night only, we present limited edition and one of a kind work from a select number of jewellery designers. These will be new to the shop and the showcase will provide the perfect opportunity to pick up something completely unique for those hard to buy for friends and family (or as a Christmas present to yourself…).
The first 30 to arrive will get a glass of something bubbly. Socialise and shop – what’s not to love?
The Covered Market
Date: Monday – Saturday
Location: Oxford High Street (Take Oxford bound city and park&ride services).
We love walking around the Covered Market at Christmas time. With so many independent stores inside, you could do almost all of your Christmas shopping there under one roof – including the Christmas Tree!
Fair Trade at St Michaels
Date: November and December
Location: Cornmarket Street (Take Oxford bound city and park&ride services).
Feel good about your Christmas shop by buying Fair Trade at St Michaels. The store, tucked just off the Cornmarket Street, is full of fair-trade clothes, Christmas gifts and food. St Michaels is also a great place to purchase handmade Christmas decorations!
