Christmas Markets, Bath Spa

A quintessential Christmas break

A quintessential Christmas break

Victoria Broadhead

A quintessential Christmas break should be spent with a day out in Bath, spend the day wondering the streets and soaking in the history of the city during this magical month. The Bath Christmas Markets are renowned, I defy anyone to visit the markets and not leave feeling at least a sparkle of the Christmas cheer! The biggest Christmas shopping event in the South West, with over 170 traditional wooden chalets lining the streets between Bath Abbey and the infamous Roman Baths. 
Pick up some beautiful artisan products ranging from Christmas decorations to children’s toys, then warm your hands with a glass of mulled wine that you only get to enjoy once a year!
End your day with afternoon tea at Searcy’s ‘The Pump Room’, history abounds in this beautiful city and the Pump Room is no exception. This elegant restaurant, connected with the Roman Baths, serves water pumped up from the spa – something you’ll be hard pushed to find in any other restaurants.
To top off your experience, the Pump Room Trio plays every day throughout the year to add to your enjoyment during morning coffee or afternoon tea. This is the South West’s best nod to Christmas, even Scrooge couldn’t leave Bath in December without smelling of Christmas and spice and all things nice!
