One thing that I have very quickly come to learn about my new home city is that it takes Christmas very seriously. Months of planning seem to result in Bath’s spectacular annual Christmas market. Luckily for me, it appears I moved to the city in time for their biggest showcase yet. Over 200 chalets filled with some of the ‘best’ Bath has to offer. Of course, with this many chalets, finding ones that actually interest you is a very different story. Regardless, the entire experience is something to remember.
As I have mentioned before, I think all Christmassy activities should be done of an evening. The cold, dark and crispy airs, filled with glittering lights just make everything feel that bit more festive; especially when it’s partnered with fake snow. Yes that’s right, Bath literally pumps fake snow all across the market so you really do get the whole shebang.
I have to be totally honest however, whenever I go to Christmas markets, my interested is usually in the food. I wonder around for about 20 minutes and take in the whole experience but the only huts that ever grab my attention are the food ones. Shock. This year, I managed to scoff down a massive hot dog, a chocolate waffle and then a Cointreau hot chocolate (the adults version of an orange flavoured hot chocolate), all in the space of about 10 minutes. Other than the desperate need for some water to wash all of it down, I had zero regrets.
Along with a large consumption of food, I did manage to pick up a few little treats for myself. I somehow got drawn into an all-natural beauty chalet and picked up a cleanser and face-mask. Of course, I won’t be going into any detail here as you can be expecting full review!
