Bath Christmas Markets Trip

Saturday 09 December 2023, 10am - 8pm

Meeting Point: Student Union

Event Information

Bath is the perfect city to host Christmas markets. This Is quintessential England, a city known for its Roman baths and Natural hot springs, which have been attracting high society for centuries.

This city is brought to life by the award-winning prestigious Christmas markets, which have been described by judges as “internationally attractive, setting standards for other Christmas markets”.

And it is not hard to see why! With over 150 rustic chalets, you’re bound to find that artisan gift for a special someone. From homemade jewellery, classy homeware and charming Christmas decorations the market brings together a classy and varied selection of local sellers.

But the experience is much more than that. The air is filled with the scent of Christmas from the street food vendors; treat yourself to some traditional British Christmas fayre as you explore – a warm mince pie washed down with a sweet, mulled wine is a must. And all around is the hustle and bustle of a busy market is the sound of the season – brass bands, choirs and children all sing your favourite carols, making this is enchanted Christmas you’ve been dreaming of.

We strongly suggest booking tickets to the Roman Bath in advance if you wish to visit.
