Bath Christmas Market 2016

Bath is about half an hour by car but the roads into the city can get very congested and parking is scarce when the Christmas market is on so why not take the train from Trowbridge (4 miles), only 15 minutes into Bath.

18 days of magical festive shopping, the city centre around Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths is transformed into a Christmas shopping wonderland. Right in the heart of Bath’s main shopping district, more than 170 traditional wooden chalets line the streets offering handmade and beautiful gifts….everything you need for the perfect Christmas.

After a day at Bath Christmas Market 2016 Coachmans Holiday Cottage in Steeple Ashton is THE Country Cottage that you will want to return home to.…put a match to the real log fire and unwind with a bottle of wine.
