Bath Christmas Market
When: 27 Nov - 14 Dec 2014
Opening hours: 10am-7pm
Website: Visit website
Bath has gained a reputation as the ‘Christmas Capital of the West’ due to the famous market and combination of quality independents and favourite high street stores, all of which make Christmas shopping in Bath a delight rather than a chore.
The shops in Bath are all located within a compact, accessible centre, set against the wonderful backdrop of stunning architecture, giving shopping in Bath at Christmas even more sparkle.
Lit with twinkling lights, the SouthGate shopping area just opposite the train station welcomes you with a range of shops offering designer brands and high street names such as Debenhams, Apple, Hollister and Kurt Geiger. Opened in 2010 in a style to match the city’s period architecture, here you will find 21st century shopping in Georgian splendour.
Further into the city, you will find a high street area, packed with every brand you could want – including Marks and Spencer, Body Shop, BHS, Disney Store, Next, Monsoon and Accessorise amongst others – the perfect place to start crossing off items on your gift list.
If you’re looking for special gift ideas, make sure you explore the passageways off of the main thoroughfares to find something a little more unusual. Delve into the picturesque alleyways and you will find cobbled streets lined with interesting independent retailers and hidden gems selling anything from antiques, art and crafts to jewellery, vintage clothing and toys.
Don’t miss Milsom Street, voted in 2010 as the ‘UK’s Most Fashionable Street’, and home to Jolly’s, the country’s oldest department store, now House of Fraser. Also on Milsom Street you will find Milsom Place, a collection of designer stores and indulgent eateries.
