Crib Figurines, hot chestnuts, gingerbread and mulled wine:

visit englandThe Christmas Market, an icon of the festive season, gives us an excuse to start celebrating Christmas early. There are now more Christmas Markets to choose from than ever before – this year sees city centres, cathedrals, castles and – for the first time – beach huts hosting stalls selling everything from traditional wooden toys and handmade jewellery to gingerbread and mulled wine. This year also sees bilingual butlers line the capital’s streets offering shoppers five-star service while the opulent Orient-Express trains will travel to Christmas Markets in cathedral cities. Here, VisitEngland highlights some of the best festive shopping experiences on offer.

 
Birmingham – twinned with Frankfurt

Taking inspiration from its twin city, Frankfurt, Birmingham’s Christmas Market is the largest German-style Christmas market outside Germany. Showcasing some of the city’s finest craftsmen, these markets should be firmly at the top of anyone’s Christmas list. Birmingham’s markets comprise over 180 glowing wooden chalets sprawled across Victoria Square, Chamberlain Square and New Street, each one packed with treats from glistening handmade baubles to traditional wooden toys. You might stray from gift shopping though, as it’s rather difficult to resist the smells of marzipan, mulled wine and rich gingerbread.
