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
Looking for a truly fantastic festive shopping experience? Look no further than the award winning, beautiful Bath Christmas Market. Each year the centre of Bath is transformed into a magical Christmas shopper’s paradise, as over 170 chalets packed full of gorgeous Christmas gifts line the streets surrounding the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey.
Soak up the sights, smells and sounds as you wander around the market; we guarantee the aroma of warming mulled wine and freshly baked mince pies, enjoyed with a generous sprinkling of cheering carols will get even the biggest of humbugs into the Christmas spirit!
Don’t forget that Bath has plenty to offer outside of the market too, including stunning architecture, top restaurants and the UK’s only natural thermal spa you can bathe in. Come Christmas, the city is abuzz with fantastically festive things to do; why not take a break from your shopping to enjoy a hot chocolate in the snug pop up Après Ski Bar, or visit Bath Abbey for a Christmas carol service? With Santa’s Grotto and the ice rink nearby, there’s plenty to keep the little ones (or the young at heart!) happy too.
Discover what makes Bath Christmas Market so unique.
We’re proud to be not just a distinctively British Christmas market, but a very local one too, as more than 80% of our stallholders are businesses from Bath and the surrounding area. Our stallholders, or makers (as we like to call them), are a large part of what makes the Bath Christmas Market so special, with each one carefully selected to give you the best shopping offer possible. From handmade wooden toys and crafted candles, to tasty cheeses and funky jewellery, you’ll be able to find something for everyone on your Christmas gifts list.
Find out more about our makers and the inspiration behind their charming products…
New for this year's market is the Lodge, an indoor venue reminiscent of a rustic snow lodge.
