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.

Dear June and Darryl,
I am sorry that you couldn't be satisfied with your stay in our old house right in the center of Prague.
As you knew, I double-checked the amenities list in my listing, and haven't found any mistake with washer or grill from our side. They were not mentioning as a devices at guest's disposal, even by mistake.
I emailed you immediately after your complaint list of laundry services 5 minutes from our house. Maybe you didn't see that, even wifi was provided in the flat.
Hope you enjoyed Prague and our comfortable flat despite this misunderstanding.
And about communication: as all guests, you got booking confirmation with my phone and address, and then several other messages, i.e. detailed airport - house directions. Not always I can be personally with guests in arrival time, so my neighbor (yes, not speaking English) is sometimes giving key to guests. But always with very, very detailed instructions (on paper and in email) and tips - in English, of course.
