If you’re looking for a really fun and exciting market to visit this Christmas then look no further. Here’s our definitive list of Britain’s best Christmas markets. 1. Rochester The Dickens Christmas market at Rochester Cathedral encompasses the spirit of Christmas. The Victorian themed market attracts thousands of visitors, most of who dress up in Dickensian costume. There’s an array of great stalls, a fair and even a snow machine. 2. Birmingham Since it started over a decade ago Birmingham Christmas Market has gone from strength to strength. Stall holders travel from German and other parts of Europe to bring their fare to the people of Birmingham. You can find a fine selection of wooden and handmade gifts but the highlight of this festival is the amazing food which encompasses giant pretzels, gingerbread hearts and everything in between. 3.
