Get into the festive spirit nice and early this year with a trip to the Bournemouth's Christmas Market.
Christmas spent by the English seaside might not sound too promising but when there's the Bournemouth Christmas Market to look forward to, you certainly won't be craving sun, sea and sand.
Nothing says Christmas like strolling around a beautifully lit festive market in a big woolly jumper and your warm bobble hat. Running for a number of years, the Bournemouth Festive Market has seen thousands return year after year to the town's square. It's inspired by traditional German markets with stunning chalets selling a range of German goodies.
You can expect a range of both German and British cuisine and authentic beverages, as well as a number of fantastic gifts, handicrafts and festive treats. A particularly popular stall is the Charcoal BBQ Bratwurst House which sells an array of tasty sausages cooked on a German swing grill. Or you can stay native if you prefer and enjoy some traditional roasted chestnuts.
Whatever you decide to buy and eat at the Bournemouth Christmas Market, at least it should take your mind off the winter weather. But then again, at Christmas we wouldn't have it any other way.
