With over 170 market stalls (the largest indoor Market in Europe) Coventry Market really is the place to find 'All Kinds of Everything'!

The world famous ‘Round’ Coventry Market has a rich history and has been offering local people with quality and choice since 1958. Having won the National Association of British Market Authorities' Indoor Market of the Year for 2007,Britain's Favourite Market in 2010 and the award for the Most Loved Market in 2013 it’s one of the most successful markets in the country. 

Coventry Market is a real hive of activity and there is always something going on, from cooking demonstrations and free food tasting to lots of fun activities for the children but there is no better time to visit than the run up to Christmas to really soak up the atmosphere of a traditional market. 

Every year Coventry Market and the Market Traders put on a fabulous FREE Christmas themed Grotto, last year’s Winter Wonderland was a truly magical experience for the whole family. 

Based on the theme of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe the Winter Wonderland experience saw children and parents entering the wardrobe in to a magical world of snow and shinning stars, ride on the Magic Round-A-Bout, meet the life sized moving Lion, Aslan and received a Free family portrait photo with the snow queen. 

This year’s Christmas Grotto will be themed on ‘Santa’s Workshop’ – The children can come along and enjoy Christmas themed activities such as making their own Christmas toy to take away and writing a letter to Santa. They will also receive a free framed family Christmas photo and free rides on the Coventry Market Round-a-Bout! 

For a truly magical experience, a great selection of fresh locally sourced food and an array of Christmas gifts available pop in and discover Coventry Market.

NB: The Coventry Market Round-a-Bout is open all year round between 10.00am and 3.00pm, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday during term times and every day during school holidays.
