This winter, Haddon Hall will host its renowned Mercatum Christmas Artisan Markets over four long weekends, bringing together some of the finest artisans in the country in a beautifully curated event like no other.

One of the biggest events on the East Midlands Christmas calendar, Mercatum will feature over 90 artisans set in the magnificent grounds of Haddon and within the hall itself. Visitors are invited to weave their way round the grounds, starting in front of the Stables, where a host of delicious food and drink stalls will be in situ.

Each room will feature a selection of makers and producers, with visitors also able to wander out into the Elizabethan gardens, where there will be more stalls on two of the terraces, lit by fairy lights.

Visitors can enjoy a luxury hot chocolate or a mulled wine while browsing a variety of stalls and taking in the magnificence of the hall, before sitting down with something delicious to eat from an array of street food traders.

This year sees a host of new artisans joining the line-up, with ceramicists, silk artists, jewellers, candle makers, chocolatiers, woodwork, stationery and more, offering plenty of inspiration for Christmas gifts.

For those who want to make the most of the occasion, The Peacock at Rowsley, which is located on the Haddon estate and celebrates its 200th anniversary this year, is offering hotel guests complimentary tickets to Mercatum, as well as transport to and from the hotel.
