Things to do
While we’re certain you’ll love the Bath Christmas Market, please be warned that you may need multiple days to explore this exciting city! The World Heritage site is famous for its beautiful architecture, iconic sights and fascinating history, so why not come to Bath for a couple of days and really soak up all that the city has to offer at Christmas time?
Delve into the Roman and Georgian eras at the city’s diverse collection of fascinating museums, allowing you to explore art, history, science and literature. There’s sure to be something in Bath’s rich heritage that piques your interest…
If you’re not a museum-lover, you might be tempted by the world-renowned spas, or the established theatres (including the oldest Theatre in the country), or perhaps the cooking and crafty workshops available? For the more active, the many beautiful walking and cycle routes provide an exciting way of discovering the splendours of the city and surrounding countryside.
At night the city really comes to life with live music, comedy clubs and buzzing cocktail bars – you’ll be spoilt for choice for what to do after dark.
Whatever you choose to experience during your visit, we guarantee you’ll be reminiscing about your city break in Bath for a long time afterwards.
You can view a list of everything that’s on during this year’s market here, including the Bath Film Festival, Christmas Grotto, Christmas at the American Museum and ice skating.
