Top Tips for Visiting

Check out our Bath Christmas Market top tips to ensure you make the most of your visit!

Timing is everything…

Chose the time of your visit wisely, depending on the experience you would like. Weekends and lunchtimes can be busy, and perfect if you enjoy the hustle and bustle and atmosphere of the crowds, or if you are hoping for a more leisurely browse, weekday evenings and mornings are more suitably sedate.

Wrap up warm…

Make sure your clothing is suitable for the event – there is nothing worse than being uncomfortable or cold when you are scouring the stalls. Some of the site is on cobbled areas, and although very pretty, this is not the best place to show off your new heels. The whole market is outdoors, so you will need warm clothing – layers are best, and easily removed when you move on into the city’s wonderful (and warm!) shops.

Let someone else take the strain…

With a number of popular events happening in the city, as well as an increase in people shopping at this time of year, the roads and car parks can be quite busy. Let someone else take the strain, and travel by train, bus or coach – this will also allow you to take advantage of the warming mulled wine on offer. If you prefer to drive, take advantage of the city’s fast and reliable Park & Ride services, which will drop you straight into the city centre.

Plan your visit…

Make sure you don’t miss a single stall or feature by getting your own copy of the Bath Christmas Market programme. This will include details of the stallholders, along with a plan of the market, to help you navigate your way through the maze of wonderful wares. Help in planning your visit to Bath, including transport, accommodation, shopping, events and maps, is available at visitbath.co.uk. You can also download the Official Bath App for iPhone and Android for free, a handy tool that includes maps, directions, discount vouchers, event information and more.

Let us help…

The Bath Visitor Information Centre is on the site of Bath Christmas Market – although shielded by some of the market stalls! Why not pop in for helpful advice about getting around the city, accommodation advice and booking, and shopping recommendations? Friendly, helpful assistants are ready to help with all of your queries. There is even a well stocked shop selling maps, guides and Bath mementos – you may find the perfect gift for someone where you perhaps wouldn’t expect.
