Five Festive Things to Do at Bath Christmas Market

Welsh Food and Travel Blogger Jamie from Explore with Ed tells us his five top tips of things to do during Bath Christmas Market...

1. Enjoy a Mulled Wine or Hot Chocolate

The words 'let's go to Bath Christmas Market' alone may be enough to fill you with festive cheer, but there's no better accompaniment for exploring a plethora of festive chalets than a piping hot mulled wine or indulgent hot chocolate. You can find stalls across the market to treat yourself.

2. Bag Some Unique Handmade Crafts

One of the best things about Bath is the variety of independent craft and vintage shops the city has to offer. Bath Christmas Market showcases the wonderfully creative work from Timber Treasures, Bertie & Jack, Keylime Design and more. It's the perfect place for picking up personalised and unique gifts for friends and family.

3. Stop Off at The Lodge

Midway through your Market wanderings you may like to warm up inside the large ski lodge, right in the heart of the city on Stall Street. This cosy cabin comes with tables and benches to take the weight off your feet whilst enjoying a toasted sandwich and hot drink.

4. Sample Some of Bath's Best Local Produce

The Market is an awesome opportunity to sample some of the regions finest produce, including the scrumptious Bath Soft Cheese, Chatley Chocolate Brownies and Bath Gin. The enticing aroma of roasting pecans and hazelnuts alone will stir up an appetite - be sure to come hungry!

5. Explore Bath Abbey

Every Saturday during Bath Christmas Market, Bath Abbey will be offering carol services to get shoppers into the spirit of the season. There are also tower tours available periodically to savour the best view of Bath Christmas Market from above. It does require walking up and down 212 steps, but seeing the chalets lit up on sundown is so worth it! Don't forget to check Bath Abbey's website for times before you visit, and have a joyful time in this magical city!
