From Thursday November 23 to Monday December 10, the centre of Bath will be transformed into a festive haven with over 200 chalets lining the streets surrounding the Roman Baths and stunning Bath Abbey. The award-winning Christmas market will be packed full of gorgeous gifts, many made locally, as well as foodie treats and mulled wine.

The town’s annual Frost Fayre will take place on Saturday November 25 with plenty for the whole family to enjoy.

4. Exmoor Christmas Fair, Porlock
On Saturday November 25 and Sunday November 26, Porlock’s will host the Exmoor Christmas Fair in its Village Hall. Expect plenty of stalls full of unique and hand-crafted gifts to treat loved ones to this Christmas.
