The Christmas Markets are a popular day trip every year. Crosskeys Coaches have been running these Christmas Markets Day Trips for many years and they continue to be a sell out!
This year we visit the Christmas Markets of Bruges, Lille and St Albans for the day. We also have a 3 night trip to the Valkenberg Christmas Market – unique in the fact that they are underground in an extensive network of caves!
What better way than to get into the festive spirit than a festively decorated market with hundreds of stalls selling a variety of gifts and food! These are stunning cities all year round which are simply transformed during this Christmas period. The added bonus of travelling by coach is that you don’t need to give the parking a second thought -and you could enjoy a glass of festive mulled wine or two!
Bruges Christmas Market
Bruges is a magical city, especially in deep winter when its cobbled streets are alive with festivities, glowing with Christmas lights. To add to the atmosphere, an ice rink is built on the Bruges Market Square close to the many food and festive gift stalls, which offer traditional seasonal delights.
Lille Christmas Market
The Place Rihour area of Lille comes alive at Christmas-time and transforms into a real winter wonderland. The market is home to over 80 wooden chalets and stalls offering all manner of festive goodies and culinary delights. Father Christmas makes regular appearances and there is also a funfair. For a stunning view of this artistic and historic city, why not take a trip on the 50 metre high Big Wheel situated on the Grand Place.
St Albans Christmas Market
St Albans knows a thing or two about markets, having one of the oldest regular markets in the UK, dating back to the 9th century. So what better UK City to hold a European-style Christmas Market, with up to 65 chalets?
Join us on a day out to experience these festive events!
