Christmas in Derby - Step 1: The Perfect Tree

2nd November 2015

It wouldn't be Christmas without the tree, would it?

The big question - real or fake? You can't beat the smell of a fresh Christmas tree, but an artificial one stands the test of time and quality throughout the season, so the choice is yours!

For a real tree, there are various places across the city boundaries and county that sell top quality trees. Many garden centres stock them as well as nurseries such as Collyer's Nurseries and Donington Nurseries

For an artificial tree, some of the best ones are found in local garden centres such as Derby Garden Centre which is currently hosting an enormous Christmas store with an extensive range of styles, items, gifts and, of course, trees. Various festive markets across the city from now until Christmas are also a great place to search for perfect trinkets, crafts and decorations to make the season truly magical.

Check out these festive markets throughout November and December in Derby:

"O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!"
