Each year Bath has a Christmas Market. The market is widely accepted as one of the best in the country. It is certainly large with many varied stalls selling seasonal and non-seasonal food/drink and gifts,crafts of simple and innovative designs. It is situated beneath/beside the lovely floodlit Bath Abbey which gives it a very atmospheric feel after sunset.
Whilst in Bath there are many historic and architecturally interesting places to visit such as The Royal Crescent, The Circus, The Spa with its tea rooms, where you can taste the water and the World Heritage Site of the Roman Baths.
Bath is within 15min by train and 30min by car from Chippenham.
