Somerset is known for some of the very best Christmas fairs and markets in the country. Sadly some of these wonderful events, such as Bath Christmas Market, have had to be cancelled for the second year in a row. But fear not, if you’re planning a holiday in Somerset this Christmas, you’ll be happy to know that there are still plenty of fantastic local events taking place in the county, that are sure to get you in the festive spirit.
At Lakeview Holiday Cottages in Somerset, we are as excited about the festive season as you are, that’s why we’ve put together this list of the best Christmas markets and fairs that are still taking happening in Somerset this year. Read on to find out more!
Bristol’s Christmas Market
One of the most popular Christmas markets in Somerset, this delightful German-style market taking place from 5th of November 2021 to 23rd of December 2021, is sure to get you into that magical festive spirit. With over 50 unique stalls, you will find an array of traders selling seasonal delights and crafts perfect for those looking for that one-of-a-kind Christmas gift.
This year visitors will be able to enjoy heated seating and delicious festive drinks in the popular Jäger Barn Bavarian Alpine Bar or to book one of their brand new cosy igloo pods for those who prefer to soak up the festive atmosphere in private. There will also be a range of live entertainment from local musicians as well as visits from Santa and his reindeer!
Christmas Gift Market in Frome
Held at Cheese & Grain in Frome on the 4th and 18th of December, this unique Christmas market in Somerset will boast a variety of stalls filled with local crafts and produce, perfect whether you’re just browsing for inspiration or looking to find a unique gift for a special someone. Entry to this event is free.
Although an hour or so journey in the car from our Christmas holiday cottages in Somerset, Frome is a beautiful town and civil parish that is well worth the visit. With winding, cobbled streets and warm, traditional pubs, there’s lots more to see, do and explore this Christmas.
Weston’s Festive Fayre
From the 27th November 2021 to 2nd January 2022, the Italian Gardens in Weston-super-Mare will transform into a Christmas wonderland. In this outdoor festive market, you will find an array of seasonal favourites from locally sourced businesses.
On Saturday the 27th November, the Christmas lights switch-on event is going to take place, followed by carols and a brass band performance. Why not join the celebration and enjoy sparkling lights whilst indulging in warming mulled wine?
