Bristol is about to become much more festive as the ever-popular Christmas Market in Broadmead returns. A time of the year which will see the shopping quarter adorned with beautifully coloured lights and stalls selling the best food and drink.

Local traders will set up shop in the heart of Bristol, opening a grand total of 40 different stalls that will sell a range of seasonal treats, crafts and much more. Broadmead will also host the much-loved Jager Barn Bar, which serves the tastiest German beer.

More features of this year’s Christmas Market include Ski Gondolas and Christmas Igloos. All of which you can book in advance if you want to be certain and reserve your place, guaranteeing yourself a supremely comfortable experience.

2022 marks the second successive year of the free-to-enter Christmas Market, with last year’s iteration cementing its place as a must attend for any Bristolian. Ever since its cancellation in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, demand has been astronomic.
