It is so ridiculously busy that it's nothing short of dangerous.
When we first arrived we wanted to seek out somewhere for lunch, after a long journey. After being horrified by how busy it was we were keen to get away from the Market...More
I love Bath any time of year but the Christmas Market is special. It takes over the whole of the old town and meanders through the streets and squares. Go at night, it's so beautiful and atmospheric. The stalls are about 90% local products which...More
