Discover the Magic of Bath this Christmas

Bath Tourism

Soak up the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas, as you wander through the streets of Bath. Take in the aroma of mulled wine, freshly baked mince pies and the sounds of the city choir.

Only a 90 minute train from London, the World Heritage Spa City of Bath is a magical place to visit for a Christmas break with its glittering lights, shops brimming with unusual gifts, festive activities and the Bath's Christmas Market – one of the most picturesque Christmas markets in England.

Running from the 23rd November to 10th December the market occupies a stunning location in the heart of the city, nestled between the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. You can uncover true Christmas magic from 200 decorated chalets, as you wander through the picturesque Georgian streets and squares.

Enjoy the magical festive shopping experience as you will be sure to find the perfect present for friends and family, or perhaps even a little something to treat yourself. With local artwork, handmade Christmas decorations, bespoke jewellery, homewares, festive food and drink, toys, accessories and even gifts for pets, you will be spoilt for choice.

Filling the streets with music and festive joy during the Bath Christmas Market are various entertainers from carol singers and local dramatic societies to local school children, and Bath Abbey will be opening their doors for Shopper’s Carols. 

Weary shoppers can drop into The Lodge by Bath Ales for comforting winter food and warming tipples, where the relaxing rustic décor make it the perfect place to take a well-earned rest and soak up the festive atmosphere.

Besides the market there will be a whole host of festive activities for big kids and little ones including ice skating, glow in the dark mini golf or catch a the pantomime of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the famous Theatre Royal. Plus, No. 1 Royal Crescent and The American Museum in Britain will both be dressed for Christmas, if you are in need of another hit of festive fun.
