Where’s the magic?

Bath’s annual Christmas Market pulls in a lot of extra visitors and certainly benefits traders, hotels and guest houses but where is the Christmas spirit in once again omitting the carousel that was always positioned outside the Roman Baths side entrance in Stall Street.


In its place – alongside this iconic heritage site –  an even bigger and uglier bar shed. There are plenty of other places to have a drink.


Why deny the kids a bit of magic and the street some fantastic colour and atmosphere. Shame on you.

At least the Abbey Hotel’s ‘snow globe’ is here!

Meanwhile Bathonians – those with Discovery cards – can benefit from freebies and discounts being offered by market traders this year.
