Share This Article:

With only five weeks until Christmas, Britain has finally opened the doors to our favourite festive markets. Mulled wine? Ice rinks? Enough sweet treats to put you on Santa's 'nice' list just from the amount of sugar you've consumed? We've got you covered with some of the best markets available this winter.

November to January (various dates)

With London being the heart of the UK it's only normal to expect that when they do Christmas, they do it well. Visitors can choose from several different markets throughout the city from Southbank Centre Winter Market (November 14th to December 30th), the festive extravaganza that is Hyde Park Winter Wonderland (November 18th to January 2nd) and the pop-up town that is Winterville. (November 23rd to January 1st). 

November 10th to December 24th

Christkindelmarkt is the German Market set in the heart of Leeds. With plenty of food and beverages to choose from including schnitzels and the all-important jägermister, there isn't much you can't love.

November 23rd to December 10th

Every year the streets of Bath are filled with over 200 stalls producing items from local areas and suppliers. Ceramics, clothing, toys and of course food and drink; there's something for everyone within these streets. Once the market has been explored there's always the opportunity to look around the Roman Baths or catch a Christmas pantomime performance at the Theatre Royal.

November 19th to January 7th

Edinburgh holds a range of Christmas markets that run into the New Year. Visit East Princes Street Gardens (18th November - 1st January) for the romantic festive experience or stop by George Street (17th November - 24th December) for an array of crafts, artists and tasty delights. 

November 18th to December 23rd

Head to Belfast for a festive break. Sample the large selection of treats from Belgian chocolates to an array of cheeses. As well as the extensive range of continental food visitors can find clothing, decorations and gifts from across Europe.
