Christmas markets and nearby campsites

As Christmas gradually creeps towards us, some of England's nicest cities are alive with the twinkling lights of a Christmas market.

Think wrapped up warm, the smell of roasting chestnuts and the warmth of mulled wine. Nothing gets you in the festive mood like perusing some great little stalls selling unique gifts and confectionery while the sound of carols floats across the air.

Below are a selection of the markets available and our suggestion for a campsite nearby for a nice litttle festive break.
