8. Bath, England
There are few cities in the world where you can feast the birth of Jesus and the birth of Jane Austen with the same amount of fanfare, but Bath happens to be one of them. There’s also a varied program of holiday drama, musicals, opera and concerts, including Cinderella and Rumpelstiltskin. Bath on Ice is a great excuse to bundle up and lace up your skates, while the Thermae Bath Spa is the perfect reason to strip down and savour the steam emanating from the thermal mineral-rich waters of an open-air rooftop pool with spectacular views over the city.
Bath has it’s own way to celebrate Christmas.
