Salisbury Christmas Market
The cathedral city of Salisbury in Wiltshire is transformed into a magical wonderland at Christmas. We will be visiting the Christmas market where the many food, craft and art stalls will provide plenty of opportunities to buy a special Christmas gift, and you should have time to see the sights.
Southampton Christmas Market
The Southampton Christmas Market features a traditional German market operated by internationally renowned WELA Märkte featuring totally unique, individually designed alpine chalets with traditional German fayre, from bratwurst and waffles to gingerbread hearts and candied fruit. The market includes over 40 independent stallholders offering a range of hand-made, authentic gifts including wooden toys, baskets, soaps, lamps, jewellery as well as Christmas decorations.
The Southampton Christmas Festival is a major part of Southampton's Christmas events which also features daily entertainment. In addition to the market and the musical entertainment there is the amazing Flying Santa show, taking place twice a day above the Christmas Festival. This amazing show has become a firm favourite and is literally a real highlight.
