Get festive by booking a city break near a spectacular Christmas market. Packed full of unique handmade gifts, light shows, ice rinks, fairgrounds and much more, Christmas markets offer plenty of festive cheer to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Cities across Europe play host to Christmas markets from November. Visit Berlin to see Charlottenburg Castle bathed in romantic lights. Or discover unique handmade gifts in between seeing the sights in Vienna, Brussels or Prague.
In the UK, some of the best Christmas markets are held in London, York and Bath. Go there for traditional German-style stalls selling handmade jewellery, crafts and toys and tasty yuletide delicacies. And there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained with street theatre, fairgrounds and, of course, Santa’s grotto.

What a delight to read your review. These are many of the reasons that we love living here in Deep Cove ourselves, the mountain air is so clean and invigorating. There are no end of logs for the fire with all the wonderful crackle and radiant heat to warm you. Nice to come back to after adventures or a soak in the hot tub outside, or the jacuzzi inside.
Next time, we agree that kayaking is a great experience. 10km of fjord and so many islands and beaches to explore from the kayak rental here in the cove is heaven. It was lovely to see your little dog enjoy the safety of the enclosed deck and the beautiful trails in the woods and parks.
Do come back again and enjoy more rejuvenation.
