Essential guide to UK Christmas Markets and festivals in 2018

A glass of mulled wine and an array of festive gifts – the traditional Christmas market or festival is sure to get you in the spirit for the big day.

A heady mix of roasted nuts, cinnamon and orange scents, Christmas carols ringing in your ears and an array of sparkling, flashing lights will overwhelm the senses.  Take a wander around the stalls filled with stocking fillers, unique gifts and the fluffiest scarfs you have ever felt!  A Christmas market is the place to taste the unusual and gather presents for your nearest and dearest.

Book a midweek city break and enjoy all the festivities in a city near you.  See our list of locations to enjoy the Christmas cheer….
