Walk the cobbled streets of our beautiful hometown of Bradford-on-Avon with its tithe barn, weavers cottages and the quintessential Bridge Tea Rooms, join Kennet and Avon Canal calling in at the Cross Guns in Avoncliffe situated just next to the aquaduct…… these are just little tasters of what Wiltshire has on offer ……

Welcome to the Great Bath Feast
Now in its fifth year with a super-enhanced schedule of events and promotions across the city, the Great Bath Feast will once again dominate Bath’s social calendar from Saturday 23rd September – Sunday 8th October this year, celebrating, acknowledging the very best tastes and flavours that Bath has to offer from local producers, passionate artisans and unique, tiny tea houses to the nationally-acclaimed culinary superstars hard at work in some of the best restaurants in the UK. So much choice ……..
The Great Bath Feast brought to you by Visit Bath and team (incorporating official Brand Ambassadors The Pig Guide, and in partnership with the Bath BID and Great Western Railway) are as proud of those businesses as their owners and resident chefs are – and we know for sure that, during this 15 day celebration of good taste, they won’t let anybody down.
Is the Great Bath Feast the ultimate harvest festival? We think so.
Just a short stroll from Bath Spa Railway Station and Bath Bus Station, in the centre of the city, you will find Bath Christmas Market – one of the largest festive events in the UK and certainly the most stunning and vibrant.
More than 170 quaint wooden stalls line the squares and streets surrounding the impressive Bath Abbey for 18 days, selling everything you could possibly need for your festive celebrations. Gift ideas abound, including clothing, accessories, crafts and toys as well as more unusual or one-off pieces of art and jewellery. Stock up on festive foods with cheeses, pickles and meats galore, and sample wines, liqueurs and local cider to compliment your choices. Treat yourself to luxurious chocolates and puddings or why not put together a hamper as a wonderful gift? With over 85% of stallholders being businesses from Bath and the surrounding areas, this is not just a British Christmas market, but a local one too.
Get well and truly into the Christmas spirit and enjoy the atmosphere of the market. The enchanting sound of carols and the tantalising aroma of sumptuous food on the air add to the ambience of the market, creating a magical experience. There is no need to rush. With the market open late most evenings, you can take your time and browse the stalls under twinkling lights, before perhaps retiring to a bar or restaurant.
Ideally located in the heart of Bath’s main shopping area, with well-loved high street brands and designer boutiques all around, you can’t fail to find everything you are looking for. Give yourself a treat this festive season and get your Christmas shopping ‘wrapped up’ in one magical day at Bath Christmas Market.
To get the most out of your Christmas market experience and give yourself plenty of time for browsing the stalls, visit midweek to avoid the crowds. We have some great offers available through our website so don’t delay book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment..
