Unlike many German-themed markets around the country, the Bath Christmas Market is all about local products from local businesses, and the focus is on high-quality products with a real provenance and connection with the region.
That means the money local businesses make stays in the local economy.
My top tip for the market is to come first thing in the morning and to visit the main square by the Abbey first – that’s the square with the double rows of chalets where it can get so packed it’s hard to move! Also, check out the map on the Market website to see which stalls you want to visit first.
The market is on until 14 December 2014.
