Get your fill of festive fun at some of the UK’s most popular Christmas markets – from magical sights at London’s Winter Wonderland to those chilly, cosy evenings with a cup of warm Glühwein. All across the UK, the season of Christmas markets is quickly approaching and it’s time to embrace those sparkling lights. Large or small, they can all guarantee three things: your favourite festive delicacies, masses of mulled wine and those cheesy carol songs that are impossible not to sing along to. Feeling excited? I am!
