Christmas shopping in Bath

They don’t call Bath ‘the Christmas capital of the west’ for nothing, so if you’re starting to think about where to make the most of those shopping trips in the run up to the festive period then you may want to book accommodation in Bath and really go all out.

Not only does the city have hundreds of designer and independent stores (almost in equal measure) but Christmas sees the traders of the Christmas market pull on their gloves and unpack their unique wares, and it makes the perfect place for picking up unusual gifts and decorations.

What is it about cobbled streets and Georgian buildings that look so pretty at Christmas? Well whatever it is, Bath couldn’t look more festive as the nights close in and the fairy lights twinkle, so December is one of the most popular months for a stay in the city. Don’t forget that Bath is packed with quirky little shops that are easy to miss, so wander away from the main shops now and then and you’ll find all kinds of businesses in the passageways and alleyways.

With its independent stores brimming with antiques, art and crafts you’ll find something special in Bath for even the most difficult family members to please…we promise!
