Christmas markets will again line the promenade, snuggled in the heart of Cheltenham, for their another consecutive year with German wooden chalets which started in November.
A Cheltonian Winter Wonderland
Cheltenham teamed up again with Groupe Geraud to bring the town and its many visitors a Christmas delight. With over 40 stalls, there is plenty of festive treats and foodie delights to get you in the Christmas spirit.
The warm, welcoming smell of roasted chestnuts and sizzling bratwurst will greet you as you turn just off the town’s High Street. Take a break and soak up the atmosphere with a variety of international produce, from minced pies and crepes to sweet treats. Make sure to keep hydrated with a seasonal mulled wine, hot cider or delightful hot chocolate as you browse the many wares on offer. If it’s shopping that takes your fancy, there are gifts galore, including jewellery, home accessories, clothing, handmade treasures, decorative items and more. There’s something magical about Cheltenham at this time of year, and the popularity of the Christmas markets shows how much this event is loved by those that visit. After all this if your cold, head home to your warm, cosy house thanks to a Boiler Service Cheltenham company like blu-fish.co.uk who would have come to check your heating for you.
The largest provider of markets in Europe, Groupe Geraud, have had great success with their events, and has seen them collaborate with Cheltenham BID and Cheltenham Borough Council to ensure a fantastic festive feeling is brought to life in the town. This is an event not to be missed for residents and visitors alike, with something on offer for everyone.
