Christmas Shopping Weekend

Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 December


We are opening our gift shop from 10am – 5pm on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 December. Why not come along and get those final presents for friends, family, neighbours and the dog?

Our shop has a range of high-quality and interesting gifts, including local food and drink, handcrafted gifts, brilliant books and great toys.

We intend to limit the number of customers to eight at any one time, so that you can shop in comfort. We just ask that you wear your face covering (if you are able) and give other shoppers space. We will give every customer a complimentary warming cup of non-alcoholic wassail punch to enjoy while browsing.

Our shop carries a range of products from the following lovely suppliers (and many more besides!)…

Yorkshire Blankets – including cushions, doorstops, draught excluders and hanging hearts.

Lottie Shaw’s – including mince pies, Yorkshire Parkin and gift tins full of treats

Abbeyhorn – including whisky tots, salt spoons and tankards.

Orchards of Husthwaite – including sloe gin, fruit ciders (individual and gift packs) and cherry brandy.

Hambleton Brewery – beer gift packs and gluten-free ales and beer.

Bigjigs Toys – including farm skittles, kids’ weaving loom and farmhouse sorter.

Yorkshire Lavender – including hand cream, body lotion and slumber gel.

Please note, this weekend offers an opportunity for Christmas shopping within the Museum Gift Shop only; there will be no access to the Museum.
