BATH CHRIST­MAS MAR­KET

One of the UK’S most pic­turesque mar­kets is set in wooden chalets be­neath Bath’s hon­ey­coloured gothic abbey and is a good place to stock up on gin. The mar­ket has ex­panded this year to in­clude chalets along Mil­som Street. Adding to the bon­homie will be a pi­ano that has been dec­o­rated by chil­dren and placed there for im­promptu sin­ga­longs. Free; un­til Dec 9; bathchrist­mas­mar­ket.co.uk

PAD­STOW CHRIST­MAS FES­TI­VAL, CORN­WALL

This an­nual mar­ket is run by celebrity chefs Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Out­law, who all have restau­rants in Corn­wall. With the har­bour­side town lit up and buzzing with singers and en­ter­tain­ers, there will be demos from a host of top chefs, ar­ti­sanal food to sam­ple and wine-pair­ing classes. Free; wine tast­ing from £10; Dec 6-9; pad­stowchrist­mas fes­ti­val.co.uk

ED­IN­BURGH’S CHRIST­MAS MAZE

Fam­i­lies with young chil­dren might en­joy the charm­ingly lit Christ­mas tree maze, part of Santa Land at East Princes Street Gar­dens. With an elves’ work­shop hid­den at the cen­tre, it should do a good job of warm­ing up lit­tle legs, and chil­dren can also visit Santa. The Christ­mas mar­ket here prom­ises arts, crafts and food, while nearby St An­drew Square of­fers an el­lip­ti­cal ice rink.
