Popular Christmas Markets are held in Bath, Winchester, Cheltenham, Oxford, Canterbury in Kent, Lincoln, York, Worcester, Wrexham, Durham, London and Glasgow as well as Victorian Evenings and Christmas Fayres in many other large market towns.
Browse stalls selling Christmas crafts, hand-made gifts, home-cooked food and regional delicacies, Christmas ornaments and decorations. Expect carol singers, roasted chestnuts, mince pies and Christmas goodies. Many of these cities will also have theatres with a traditional pantomime for that feel good night out.
There will be plenty of Christmas dinner options so that you don't have to cook meals unless you prefer to.
