Festive Christmas Markets

Nothing encapsulates the spirit of Christmas like fabulous markets found across the UK and Ireland. From the moment you arrive at your destination, the indisputable smell of Christmas hits you like a sweetened snowball; you’ll be chomping at the bit to get your hands on some syrupy waffles, scrumptious Brätwursts or the traditional freshly roasted chestnuts.

Sauntering through the charming streets and festively-decorated town squares, the Christmas sparkle will be further illuminated by the wonderful wooden chalets and stalls offering those special gifts that can only found at the markets.

So whilst the crisp winter air rolls through and the spiced mulled wine never tasted better, experience the unrivalled joy of a Christmas market.

Be sure to delight in the Dickensian celebrations of Yorkshire, the regal festivities of Edinburgh, or the increasingly popular Manchester Markets, step into a magical world of Christmas by exploring some of the best markets around clicking on the link below.
