Officially The Best Christmas Market In The Country
Thursday 28 November to 15 December 2019
Set against the magical backdrop of Bath’s majestic Abbey and amongst the city’s quaint Georgian streets, the market is a very British take on the usual German Christmas market and showcases the best produce of Bath and the South West.
Hailed as ‘the biggest and most beautiful Christmas shopping event in the region,’ the 18-day event will be the most substantial yet, with over 150 traditional wooden stalls lining Bath’s central streets and squares. Offering an abundance of choice, providing a variety of high-quality gifts and Christmas essentials such as decorations and locally produced festive food, with a strong emphasis on handmade, local and unique items.
Always romantic and traditionally festive, with tempting fare and gentle entertainment befitting the time of year, the area around Bath Abbey will play host to choirs singing carols and talented solo musicians singing festive songs. The market’s location, in the heart of the city, is perfect for visitors to enjoy all that the city has to offer – just steps away from the city’s train station, a wonderful mix of high street and designer shops, fascinating attractions and warm, inviting cafes and bars.
