Our 5 Favourite Christmas Markets

16 November 2018 |

German market, Birmingham
The ‘Frankfurt Christmas Market’ is one of the largest German markets held outside of Germany or Austria, with over 80 stalls of festive fare – including traditional eats like pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, roasted almonds, glühwein and weissbeer.
 
A bandstand will feature daily performances, and the annual Family Day, when many traders offer discounts, will be on Sunday 9th December.

Bath Christmas Market
The award-winning Bath Christmas Market is back with over 180 twinkling chalets nestled in Bath’s picturesque Georgian streets. Here you’ll find local makers and designers showcasing their artisan gifts, allowing you to blitz your Christmas list whilst supporting Bath’s small businesses.
 
And this year, Bath Christmas Market is going green! They'll have decorations made artfully from recycled plastic bags and bottles, designed by Christine Leech, Creative Director of Marie Claire Runway magazine.
 
It’s the perfect way to gear up for Christmas – but you’ll have to be quick – it’s only there for 18 days!

Bristol Christmas Market
Located in the very heart of Bristol City Centre, the Christmas market is home to over 50 unique stalls, as well as entertainment from the likes of Santa and reindeer visits in December.

This is all underneath our glittering Christmas tree, which will be adorned with an array of delightful decorations, and spectacular lights that both welcome and guide you throughout our magical market.
