Christmas only comes once a year, which is why we all flock to make the most of the festivities by planning Christmas events to attend. We are very fortunate to be self-catering accommodation located in the South West as we are surrounded by towns steeped in history that are further beautified by the presence of a Christmas market.
The Best Christmas Markets in the South West
Bath Christmas Market: 26th November – 13th December 2018
Over 200 chalets line the streets of Bath, each filled with unique treats from perfect Christmas presents, festive food and varying beverages. Get spoiled for choice in this beautiful setting for a Christmas market.
Frome Christmas Market in Somerset: 1st December 2018
Festivity comes to Frome! The popular market that comes to Frome each month gets bigger and better in December. There is a special event on the last day of November, the ‘Christmas Extravaganza Market’, where visitors get to experience both a Christmas market in Somerset, and the switching on of the Christmas lights!
Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market: 15th November – 16th December 2018
Is your favourite thing about a Christmas market the food? You’re in luck, the ‘food village’ is returning to the Exeter Christmas market this year! Tuck-in to a hot pulled pork bap whilst standing in the wake of the large bandstand, watching the best musical talent from the area. Their infamous mulled apple gin is back, so give in to temptation and enjoy a glass or two before heading back to your holiday accommodation in Somerset.
Glastonbury Town Council’s Frost Fayre: 24th November 2018
For one day only, the Frost Fayre comes to Glastonbury. Visitors can peruse food and gift stalls, as well as buskers and live entertainment. If you have little ones, be sure to bring them along as Father Christmas will be there!
If shopping and mulled wine isn’t for you, there’s many more Christmas things to do in Somerset for everyone.
