Is Bath Christmas Market accessible?

We are committed to ensuring, so far as reasonably possible, that Bath Christmas Market is accessible to everyone wishing to attend.

The main areas of the event site can be accessed via dropped curbs, which are permanent features of the city centre and for 2019, there will be extra tarmac ramps around the Market. There will also be Mobility Assistants at the Market every day. Visitors with mobility requirements are welcome to ask stallholders or members of staff to ask Event Control to send a Mobility Assistant to aid them during their visit. An accessible toilet facility is also made available.

For those who would prefer to browse the Market at a quieter time, weekday mornings are the best time to visit if you prefer a relaxed experience with plenty of time for exploring.

Do you have a lost property point?

If you lose an item during your visit to the Market, please approach a member of security in high-vis to inquire about lost property, or head to 10 York Street to see if it’s been handed in. If you are no longer at the Market, please email, and we will check for your item.

Where should I go if I have any questions during my visit to Bath?

Head to the Visitor Information Centre, where the friendly team will be able to help you with any questions you have. You’ll find plenty of information to plan your visit, and can pick up a few Bath-themed mementoes. You’ll no doubt spot the Bath BID Welcome Ambassadors on your travels around the city, who will provide a warm and informed welcome to visitors, acting as human information points and guiding people to their destinations at busy times. The Welcome Ambassadors cover the city centre, and you are welcome to stop them to ask questions. Their distinctive blue jackets, emblazoned with ‘Ask me!’, will help you find them. They have all the information you could possibly need at their fingertips and carry a tablet to look up anything they don’t know.
