Bath Christmas Market

With over 170 wooden alpine chalets selling gorgeous food, drinks and crafts spread across Bath’s historic city.

Bath is a more traditional market, suited for adults. There’s no Santa’s Grotto, and only one fairground ride, which is a vintage carousel. 

There are festive things to do around Bath such as light trails and ice skating, but these are very spaced out.
