Christmas markets in the UK
Many UK Christmas markets aim to emulate the success and atmosphere of their European counterparts, such as the German Christmas markets in Birmingham and Bristol. The Belfast Continental Christmas market features food and gifts from France, Germans, Spain and France, as does the popular Edinburgh European Christmas market.

Local and Victorian markets
Others city Christmas markets celebrate the local produce, such as the South-west Christmas market in Bath, or on creating a magical atmosphere for all ages, such as Nottingham’s Winter Wonderland. For vintage feel, kids of all ages will appreciate the fairground appeal of the Rochester Castle market, or the charms of the Gloucester Quays Victorian Christmas markets.
Victorian acts include:

Talking of Victorian markets, the Wrexham version is a mecca for foodies who come to sample the local fayre, including Welshcakes. Or, while you’re near Wales, why not go further back in time at the Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre.
