The tradition of the Christmas Market is at its finest in Austria and Germany, as we discussed recently when looking at winter destinations, but there are plenty of fine options in the UK too if you don’t want to travel so far!
Manchester, Belfast, Cirencester, Exeter, Edinburgh, Birmingham (which boasts the largest Christmas market outside Germany), Swansea and many more cities across the UK host formalised Christmas markets where a whole area (often a park) will be taken over with stalls selling wonderful Christmas-themed products, steaming mugs of mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and much, much more.
Christmas markets are a wonderful way to collect unique gifts for friends and family and to decorate your home with the kind of spectacular festive ornaments that you see in TV shows and films celebrating the “most wonderful time of the year.” So why not take a coach to a Christmas market with your friends and why not arrange to get there in style on a luxury coach today?
Of course, there’s more to shopping for Christmas presents than just these markets. If you want to treat your children to a new bike, the latest games console accessories, or one of those other special ‘landmark’ gifts, you’ll have more joy either in a major city or at a shopping centre, and the same is true if you want your partner to delight in a new coffee maker or something to pamper them.
Getting out to one of these specialised areas is easy for some and much more out of the way for others, and for those of you who have to make an extended trip to get there – why not pool your efforts?
Rather than take the time driving yourself, be driven in comfort by an experienced driver in one of our comfortable coaches or minibuses with your friends. A shopping trip with travel takes up most of a day anyway, so why not make the whole thing into a special occasion that everyone can enjoy?
