LIFESTYLE | Festive Fun in Bath

Living the festive dream.

Being in Bath, I was pretty excited to see what it would look like at Christmas time. I had memories of the Christmas market from a visit a few years ago, but that's about it. And I can now tell you that at Christmas time, with the shining lights, trees and carols in the streets, Bath is even more wonderful than usual. Problem is, there are thousands of other people who would like to see it too. And in a small place like Bath, it quickly becomes just as crowded as it is on Oxford Street. Especially around the Christmas market...


The Bath Christmas Market is a big event each year and so many people come to visit it. Around the abbey, the stalls sell Christmas decorations, chocolate, roasted chestnuts, mulled wine... All the Christmas classics gathered around the town centre.


But there are other amazing things to see around Bath at Christmas. The shops get their best window displays, lights brighten up the streets, and you'll often stumble upon Christmas carols when you least expect it. 
I enjoyed walking around, camera in hand, to take snaps of all the festive decorations in town. As someone who walked past me as I was taking the photo below said, "there is too much to photograph!"


On my way I stopped at the Fudge Kitchen, to get a little something for my boyfriend's family and mine. You can see the fudge being prepared in front of you and the people there are happy to make you try out all the different flavours they sell before you make your choice. I got a selection of peanut butter chocolate, salted dark chocolate, lemon sherbet fudge and a couple more that I can't quite remember now. Fudge is a great Christmas treat to have on the dinner table for a sweet treat!
