The best Christmas markets in the UK
Red Online's round-up of the UK's best Christmas markets separates the winter wonderlands from the wintry wastelands.
Ben Cooper visits Winchester's winter wonderland to enjoy a spot of ice skating - which makes for a 'truly dazzling spectacle', the Farmers' Market and the chance to meet Father Christmas. He writes: 'The whole thing builds up to a festive climax with the wonderfully atmospheric Christmas Eve carol concert in Winchester Cathedral'.
Cooper suggests heading to The Black Boy for a festive glass of mulled wine and staying at the Hotel du Vin with it's 'super-friendly service' and excellent restaurant.
