I had planned to write this post and publish on November 1st, the day you’re officially allowed to talk about Christmas.
A little fact about me is I live for Christmas markets, in fact they are my favourite part of Christmas ( you could cancel the rest for me).
This year we are going to ….. Hamburg. Nothing quite beats a traditional German market at Christmas.
But I know travelling abroad just before Christmas isn’t feasible so here are some Christmas markets in the UK.
So I’ll start as close to home as possible.
After last years attempt at a Christmas market (12 stalls) I’m not really hoping for much but there have been loads of newspaper articles bigging up this years markets.
And if all else fails I can’t help be feel festive in stack or Hadrian’s tipi. And of course Fenwick’s Christmas window.
The market in Manchester are amazing and have such a diverse amount of stalls. I would definitely recommend sampling a few baileys hot chocolates.
So I am going to Edinburgh Christmas markets this year after seeing loads of amazing reviews and I literally can’t wait. However, I can only so far judge from photos.
There a lots of markets dotted around Edinburgh but the main one in Princes street garden and plays host to a range of many different stalls.
Hyde parks winter wonderland has 100 stall market Ali n with many many other attractions. Winter wonderland is theory sounds amazing and if I lived closer you couldn’t get me away from the place but trains to London don’t come cheap.
There are obviously plenty of other markets around the UK with almost every city having one.
Hopefully this is some food for thought you don’t have to leave the UK or even travel very far too visit a German style Christmas market.
