I found it boring, terrible signposting and bad stall selection! I would defiantly say not to go. I would recommend if you were going to visit in weekday evening. I do not write bad reviews often but so busy I made an exception.

Horrendous. 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

We always visit the Bath Christmas Market on our way down to Longleat at Xmas. Bath itself is a beautiful place to visit and going to a Christmas market there is always an enjoyable experience. Bath always has carol singers which add to the enjoyment....More

Didn’t plan for this but the market had us occupied for two good hours. We are definitely not shoppers type of tourist and we didn’t buy anything off any stalls but there were many things to see and the atmosphere was enjoyable. The stalls are...More
