This market was way too overcrowded. Lots of jostling going on. Not good if you're in a wheelchair. Horrendous traffic jams coming into Bath. Crazy train station queues to get out of Bath. Coffee shops and cafes/restaurants with mega queues. Food stalls were overpriced. We...More

I knew this market was highly rated but it was even better than I imagined. The setting is lovely, of course. The stalls themselves have a wide range of goods from unique garden ornaments to hand made chocolates. They wind through the little streets, themselves...More

Never ever ever again. I've been for quite a few years and experienced it being busy but the popularity has spiraled out of control making it a horrendous experience. Don't do it to yourself - awful day.

I came to Bath a few years ago just before the Christmas market started and it was beautiful. The tree was up in front of the Abbey and we had a lovely wander around. This year we decided to go during the Christmas market and...More

It is a very pretty Christmas market and spreads across a couple of squares and streets. Some things such as mulled wine were reasonably priced but goods sold in some stalls seemed a little expensive. We went on a Sunday and it was heaving and...More

Made this a day trip by train from Cardiff so access was easy as the station is right in the city centre. It was a dry cold Tuesday when we made our visit so the market area was busy but a weekend must be manic....More
