baths christmasThe city of Bath started its festive season with a touch of Hollywood magic thanks to one of the cities most famous residents. Leading Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage wowed the crowed when he switched on the lights in the city; it’s certainly one up on the usual ex soapstar or reality tv reject.

The beautiful lights around the city are not the only festive attraction in Bath. The big switch on marked the start of a busy and fun packed festive period in the city.

One of the star attractions in Bath this Christmas is the annual Christmas Market, which will once again take place between two of Baths most famous landmarks, the Roman Baths and the Bath Abbey. The market is set to feature over 100 stalls housed in traditional wooden chalets. They will be selling everything from hand made crafted gifts to delicious food and drink. As if all that shopping wasn’t enough there will also be entertainment through out the night and special carols service taking place in the Abbey.

Another festive treat for visitors to Bath is this years panto which starts on the 17th December and finishes on 24th January. This year’s panto stars Liza Gooddard, Gemma Bissix and Tom Owen in the classic tale Sleeping Beauty.

With so much else going on now is a great time to have a pre Christmas getaway, there are plenty of hotels in Bath to provide you with accommodation during your stay and many fine restaurants to try when you’re not eating some of the delicious food from the market that is.
