The Southampton Christmas Market features a traditional German market operated by internationally renowned WELA Märkte featuring totally unique, individually designed alpine chalets with traditional German fayre, from bratwurst and waffles to gingerbread hearts and candied fruit.
The Southampton Christmas Festival takes place on Above Bar pedestrian precinct.
The market includes over 40 independent stallholders offering a range of hand-made, authentic gifts including wooden toys, baskets, soaps, lamps, jewellery as well as Christmas decorations.
This free festival also boasts daily entertainment with regular performances from local musicians and schoolchildren.
One of the highlights of the festival is a ‘Flying Santa’ who will take to the sky over the city centre each day.
