Settle Town is always buzzing at Christmas time and for a small town, there is usually a fantastic Christmas light switch on. This year the switch on takes place on Saturday 2nd December. The local school children sing carols, the shops are adorned with Christmas decorations and there is nothing nicer than standing around chatting to locals and visitors alike with hot drink in your hand.
Settle is quite unique in that it still has a lot of independent shops in the town. It is a great opportunity to buy something that you might not find in larger general stores. There are plenty of cafes to go and sit in too if the weather becomes inclement whilst waiting for the fire work display set off from the top of Castleberg, the rocky outcrop that looms over Settle town.
Come and join the fun, support some independent retailers and have some quality time with all your family.
