Battling the crowds in a city-centre precinct can make Christmas shopping a grim endurance test. That’s why we love the Christmas Market approach – especially when you use it as an excuse for a short break away!
A tradition claimed by the Germans, the first of which is believed to have been held in Munich in the year 1310. It was once called a Winter market, then eventually became known as Christmas markets. From stopping for coffee breaks and warm pastries, visiting the markets and enjoying scenic boat rides. There are countless things to do in Plymouth during the winter season.
With wooden stalls and beautiful sights, as well as sensational, unique gifts to inspire; there is everything you could possibly desire. Of course no festive season is complete without a grand platter of amazing street food, as vendors fill the air with their tantalising delights! Then, as night descends the smell of homemade mulled wine; as its rustic spice entices your senses and tastes better than anything else!
Every city looks the most beautiful when the people there are happy and content. With Christmas being the most joyous time of the year, and Plymouth so seasoned in putting on the most magical time, the streets are full of laughter, good experiences, and the opportunity for you to not only buy the best gifts, but make the most beautiful memories.
More than 300 unique individual stalls are spread across 10 sites in the northwestern city, offering food, drinks, crafts and gifts in a winding trail that takes in a lot of the city’s main streets. A melting pot of nationalities, the Christmas markets in Manchester are famous for traditional bratwurst but you can also treat yourself to Hungarian goulash, Spanish paella or a good old-fashioned hog roast. Manchester is the third largest city in the UK with plenty of things to do all year round, but Christmas is perhaps when it shines brightest.
