Christmas Markets in the UK

The chill is in the air, and you’ll be feeling the breeze in your pockets, too. But it’s money well-spent when it’s for pressies for your loved ones, which you can get from these Christmas markets near you.

Priding itself in being “The Highest Christmas Market in the UK,” the one in Cairn Gorm Mountain, Scotland, is unique in another way: visitors might just spot live reindeer! After shopping for everything from jewellery to sports equipment, have some hot gluwein at Cas Bar.

Return to Christmases past as you go from one wooden chalet to another at the internationally known market in Bath. 123 vendors offer handicrafts, toys, and décor in front of the Gothic Bath Abbey, dating back to 1499.

The Frankfurt Market and the Christmas Craft Fair comes to Birmingham this year, and with it, a deluge of food and drink. Pretzels, sausages, gingerbread, beer, and wine… This is no time to be dieting!

More revelry awaits at London's Hyde Park, which has Europe’s largest skating rink, a snow-tube slide, and a carousel. The Haunted House, Ferris Wheel, and German Market are just as delightful. Just don’t eat the almonds, crepes, and candies before taking the rides.

A Victorian Festival of Christmas is in store for those in Portsmouth. Meet Queen Victoria, Father Christmas, and Ebenezer Scrooge, as well as a cast of other characters from that era. Located in the Historic Dockyard, kids will enjoy the fairgrounds, parlour games, and music hall.

Now how about picking out a little something for yourself?
