Bath Christmas Market 2018

Last weekend, myself and a few friends spent the weekend in Bath. We booked to go early in the year so that we could explore the Christmas markets, and we weren’t disappointed.

This was my first trip to Bath and I have to say that it’s such a beautiful place. I really can’t wait to go back there again.

The Bath Christmas Market started on the 22nd November and the last day is the 9th December. It’s a shame that it’s not on a little longer, but if you do get the chance to go before it finishes, I highly recommend it.

There are over 160 twinkling chalets spread out across Bath’s picturesque Georgian streets.

The thing that really impressed me was how different all of the chalets were. Whilst there were plenty of mulled wine, cheese and jewellery stores, no two were ever the same.

The range of items on offer was truly amazing. From unique homeware such as colourful wooden bowls, to rugs, to personalised presents, clothes, Christmas decorations and more.

There were also plenty of different food stalls. You could choose to grab a delicious burger or hot dog. Alternatively, you could opt for caramelised nuts, chocolates or fudge.

There’s also ‘The Lodge’, which offers up locally-brewed quality beers, warming mulled wine and cider.

My friends and I had so much fun exploring the streets of Bath and seeing what each chalet had to offer. A few of my personal favourite stalls include Jackdaw Moroccan Lanterns, Fudge Tasters, Barty’s Trading Co, The Big Cheese Making Kit, Bath Aqua Glass, Wooden Tie Company, Katrina Beattie Glass, Chocolate Kiss Co, Go Wild Preserves.

Whilst walking around Bath Christmas Market I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful decorations. These were made using recycled plastic bags and bottles by Christine Leech, Creative Director of Marie Claire Runway Magazine.

Bath Christmas Market is a popular tourist attraction. It was very busy with lots of people wanting to shop. The marshals did a great job keeping everyone safe by putting a one way system into place.

I bought some lovely gifts including a cute rag doll, sailor teddy bear, fudge, marmalade and a lovely Santa decoration.

Bath Christmas Market is certainly a memorable day out in a stunning setting, and I can’t wait to go back! Here are some more photos from my weekend in Bath.

  1. Bath is somewhere if love to visit. But maybe not when it’s so busy. The crowds look huge there and I’m notnsure I’d enjoy that. Maybe I’m thinking about being with the kids, it’s probably different when just with adults I guess. The stalls look lovely though and I bet you got some great gifts. #thatfridaylinky

  2. Bath is lovely and i’ve experienced the Christmas market before. It’s a fab experience despite the crowds! Looking forward to going to some Winchester Christmas market this year. #ThatFridayLinky

  3. That’s my home city! I live only 8 miles from Bath and work there but, I have to admit, that I hate the Christmas market! I avoid it like the plague as it’s soooo busy. Tonight took me 45 minutes to get home. Sigh. It’s a great market for visitors though andbrings lots of people in. My advice would be go to Bath in the Spring. The shops are lovely and there are less people. If you love the market, go in the last few days as there are less people. I will go on the last day to check for bargains! Thanks for reviewing my home city! #thatfridaylinky

    1. That is one thing my friends and I were saying. We couldn’t imagine living or working in Bath when the markets are on. It was so busy, but as you say great for visitors!

  4. This is a fantastic way to shop local! I love going to things like this! I think the fudge shop would have been my first stop with a quick second tot he basket shop! #thatfridaylinky
