Horrendous. It is so ridiculously busy that it's nothing short of dangerous. When we first arrived we wanted to seek out somewhere for lunch, after a long journey. After being horrified by how busy it was we were keen to get away from the Market...More

I love Bath any time of year but the Christmas Market is special. It takes over the whole of the old town and meanders through the streets and squares. Go at night, it's so beautiful and atmospheric. The stalls are about 90% local products which...More

Never ever ever again. I've been for quite a few years and experienced it being busy but the popularity has spiraled out of control making it a horrendous experience. Don't do it to yourself - awful day.

Have visited for the past few years and always chose a weekday. Only had a Saturday free this year and I regret going to be honest. So many people that at one stage nobody could move, we were all wedged together! Impossible to get close...More
