Discover the Magic of Bath Christmas Market

The award-winning Bath Christmas Market is back for its 18th year, with 18 days of magical merriment! With over 160 twinkling chalets spread out across the city’s picturesque Georgian streets, it’s the ideal place for a spot of Christmas shopping.

From unique homeware to personalised presents, Christmas decorations, handcrafted jewellery and more, you’re guaranteed to find something special for your loved ones. It is our chalets and the individual stallholders who make our Market so special and unique. Over 80% of our stallholders come from Bath and the South West, and an impressive 99% of all products are either handmade by the stallholders’ own hands, in Britain or abroad with Fairtrade certification. When you shop at Bath Christmas Market, you are also supporting all of the wonderful small business owners.

Milsom Street

New for 2018, Bath Christmas Market is extending into Milsom Street. Admire the stunning Christmas lights, have a turn on the festive piano, and sample warming mulled cider and mouth-watering raclette-smothered jacket potatoes.

Recycled Christmas

Bath is going green this Christmas! The cheerful decorations adorning Abbeygate Street and Abbey Street will all be made using recycled plastic bags and bottles. This year, Bath Christmas Market have worked with Christine Leech, Creative Director of Marie Claire Runway Magazine, to transform discarded single use plastics into creative Christmas decorations.

Local pupils of Widcombe Junior School in Bath have made a wonderful contribution by making Christmas pompoms using plastic shopping bags that are no longer usable and snowflakes from old plastic bottles to create beautiful chandeliers.

Festive Family Artisan Market

On each Saturday during Bath Christmas Market, Queen Square will host a Festive Family Artisan Market, sponsored by Mogers Drewett. Bring along the whole family and take part in exciting activities, including a Kids Café, festive storytelling, Christmas arts and crafts workshops and face painting. There’s plenty on offer for adults, too, including glass-blowing demonstrations from Bath Aqua Glass, tasty street food and local makers from Bath Artisan Market.

Pop-Up Chalets

Each year, Bath Christmas Market has a selection of pop-up chalets on Bath Street for a limited time only.

We are passionate about supporting small businesses and offer these micro-businesses short-term lets because they would not be able to operate for the full duration. It is a great reason for you to visit the Market again and again, to see which up pop-up businesses are open that week.

The Lodge and Caterers

Whilst at the Market you’ll always find a range of excellent food, perfect for warming you up on a crisp winter’s day. The memorable atmosphere, created by the hustle and bustle of the market infused by aromas of festive, warming food, is bound to get you in the Christmas spirit.

For somewhere more cosy and indoors, The Lodge is the perfect place to put your feet up. It can be found right at the heart of Bath Christmas Market on Stall Street.

You can find more information about places to eat and drink in the city at visitbath.co.uk/feast.

Helping Charities

Bath Christmas Market is proud to support local charities.

Throughout the Market, a different local charity takes a chalet for free every single day. That’s 18 local charities who are able to raise over £10,000 for their causes! This offers a fantastic opportunity to raise the charity’s profile and build awareness, as well as raising valuable funds.

Bath Christmas Market also donate Christmas trees and other items once the Market has closed to charity.
