Bath Christmas Market

For the Christmas season the city centre becomes a twinkling celebration with the streets and squares around the iconic centre filled with dozens of traditional chalets offering gifts and treats galore, an illumination trail of its most beautiful historic buildings, Victorian carousel, traditional carols, and street entertainment centred around the Abbey and Roman Baths. Why not indulge in a glass of mulled wine as the driving is taken care of! The compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain. Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries, while admiring its stunning honey-coloured Georgian architecture that is straight from a Jane Austen novel. For a special treat enjoy the grandeur of the world-famous Pump Room for afternoon tea, and a sample of the healing Bath waters taken by the city's famous residents for hundreds of years. For something simpler but just as historic try a delicious Sally Lunn Bunn served in the famous eating house or to take away, made to the same recipe since 1680!

The town centre's independent shops, cafes and bars are nestled within a few steps. 

Well known for traditional donkey rides, the amusements and rides of the Grand Pier, ice-cream on the beach and fish & chips, there is so much more to offer as well! There’s two theatres, two cinemas, a free museum and a vast range of traditional and international cuisine – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amount of things to do.

Glastonbury Frost Fayre

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe Glastonbury Frost Fayre is an extravaganza of seasonal celebration when the local community comes together to celebrate ’Peace and Goodwill to All’ at this Festive Time of Year. The town is decorated for Christmas and filled with stalls selling gifts, seasonal items, foodie treats and much more. Entertainment goes on throughout the day, from buskers and street entertainers to live performances - helped along the way by some local fairies and elves, and of course Father Christmas himself!

Historic Glastonbury is a quirky, unique place to visit at any time of year. It's a compact town, where everything is within walking distance, retaining an independent and eclectic air that you are sure to love. The Abbey, dating from 670 AD is now an atmospheric ruin, and a visit is still very worthwhile. Prior to that time, the town existed as a Celtic religious centre. According to legend, 2000 years ago Joseph of Arimathea is said to have brought the young Jesus here. A 10-minute walk from the High Street will take you past Chalice Well to the foot of the famous mystical Glastonbury Tor. You can also enjoy the 'new age' side to the town, with mystic shops and free spirits who have made Glastonbury their home. It is a legendary place that weaves its way through everything you experience here.
