The UK is getting ready for the holiday spirit with a host of Christmas markets and fairs popping up across the Kingdom this November and December. Visiting a Christmas market is a wonderful way to spend winter’s days with friends and family. It really sets the festive mood: great atmosphere, delicious food and drinks and lots of unique gifts on offer. There are also lots of additional activities: tours, nativity scenes, afternoon tea, carol singing… The magic is all around, don’t miss it!
