The most magical Christmas Market
Over 170 traditional wooden chalets line the streets
From Christmas decorations to toys and festive tipples
Welcome to Bath this Christmas
The Bath Christmas Market offers 18 days of magical festive shopping, as the areas between the stunning Bath Abbey and the renowned Roman Baths are transformed into a Christmas shopping wonderland. Right in the heart of Bath's main shopping district, more than 170 traditional wooden chalets line the streets; each one offering handmade and beautiful gifts from Christmas decorations and food to toys and festive tipples; everything you need for the perfect Christmas.
Once in Bath this Christmas, you’ll find that there is a lot to explore and experience beyond the market too. The city centre is a shopper’s haven, plus there are many festive experiences for all the family to enjoy. It’s simply a question of what to do first: ice-skating in the crisp winter air, bathing in the warm spa water overlooking the twinkling city or enjoying a mulled wine in the Après Ski Bar. More family fun can be found at the beautiful Victorian Carousel in Stall Street, perfect for creating unforgettable festive memories.
Meet the makers
This year there will be lots of new and exciting stallholders from across the South West. In keeping with the market’s tradition of being distinctively British, each chalet will be selling a variety of high-quality artisan products. Over 70% of stallholders are businesses from Bath and the surrounding region, with 60% of the goods available at the market handmade in the UK. Bath Christmas Market is the place to stock up on truly original Christmas gifts for all the family.
We’d like to introduce you to the people who make the market so special… Find out how our stallholders make their products, what inspires them and how their businesses developed.
