So here are the five best places to visit in the UK that we recommend to experience the most magical Christmas.
Christmas in Edinburgh is filled with so many things to see and do. From fun for friends and family in the form of fairground rides, various Christmas markets also provide a chance to get your shopping done. Besides pantomimes and shows, other festivities include Ice Skating, Christmas Tree Maze, and Santa’s Grotto to ensure the fun continues until New Year’s Eve.
Midway through December, Mousehole comes alive with kaleidoscopic light. The illumination of the harbour is a truly spectacular event, featuring a beautiful sea serpent display, boats, and whales before the light switch on. At Christmas, it’s the perfect place for a festive seaside getaway since you can sit by the water and admire the twinkling lights after the big event.
From November to January, Cardiff hosts its premier Christmas event, where you can experience magical ballets to pantos. This city is also perfect for Christmas shopping with a range of fabulous shops and high street chains with everything you need.
In addition to the fireside Santa’s Grotto, Cardiff Castle offers incredible feel-good shows in its theatres.
4. Scottish Highlands
During the holiday season, the Highlands is one of the most recommended places if you’re looking for a white Christmas. There is also a great chance to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis in the northern reaches. Spending Christmas in a cosy cottage with your loved ones while the Northern Lights light up the sky and snow falls outside your window sounds perfect, right?
York’s historic lanes and beautiful architecture make it the ideal chocolate box city to spend the holidays. Start with the towering Christmas tree in St Helen’s Square before moving to St Sampson’s Square and Parliament Street for the magnificent St Nicholas Fair market stalls. Guests can also visit Santa in his log cabin and an outdoor ice rink in Winter Wonderland. York is truly a Christmas holiday destination that will get you in a festive mood.
