There is nothing we love more than wondering around a Christmas market when we start to feel festive! Here’s a list of our favourite Christmas markets in Hampshire and Dorset.

1. The German market in Winchester is recognised as one of the best Christmas markets in Europe! It attracts over half a million visitors each year, with it’s amazing setting just outside the cathedral and even ice skating too! The stalls are amazing, and lots of entertainment for all of the family!

2. Southampton is a great city for Christmas shopping, and what makes it even better is the amazing Christmas market right in the high street outside West Quay shopping centre! With its two huge beer gardens, which hosts live music and an amazing atmosphere, along with some great shopping of handmade gifts and traditional German and English Street food.

3. Bournemouth winter gardens comes alive during December, it really is magical in the gardens at Christmas time, with an ice rink and an amazing display of Christmas lights! There’s also a Christmas market and “ski-lodge” bar serving drinks and amazing hot chocolates!

4. Salisbury ice rink and Christmas market sees around 1 million visitors each year, there are over 100 stalls and eateries, including amazing home-made gifts and clothing! There are different live music and street performers every day, so be sure to check their website for whats on the day you want to visit!
