Whether you want to tie up your skates and swing around the outdoor ice rinks, check out some window displays, browse the stalls for handmade gifts or treat yourself to hearty local food and festive drinks, we'll help you experience the very best of the world's traditional Christmas markets across late November and December of this year.
You can find markets like these close to home in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds, but why not have city break abroad to places like Cologne, Vienna, Budapest or Prague? That way, you'll be able to immerse yourself into a different country's Christmas traditions, which is a good way to learn the culture and taste some of the local produce ranging from beer, food and toys.
