Now the half term holidays are behind us, thoughts turn to Christmas and the next holiday for all the family. Having a break away for Yuletide is one option – maybe hiring a cosy gîte in the Normandy countryside or deep in the heart of Ireland, or driving to the sun in the south of France or Spain. Whatever you go for, book with AFerry.co.uk as the earlier you reserve your ferry crossing, the cheaper the cost and choice of crossings.
For most of us, Christmas is a time to spend at home with friends and family so the pre-Christmas shopping trip is a chance to experience a change of scene before making plans for the Christmas Cake and when to buy the tree! That could be to a myriad of different destinations on the Continent and Ireland.
Several organisations such as Europe Best Destinations and TripAdvisor poll their users to see what towns and cities people prefer. Lists now include places as far afield as Zagreb, Stockholm, Nuremberg and Vienna. For ease of travel, the advantage of being a lot closer than these lovely destinations, and possible even on a simple day trip, we still think some of the best markets can be found in northern France.
For example Calais Christmas market – 25th November 2017 – 7th January 2018; Compiègne Christmas market – 24th November 2017 – 7th January 2018; Le Touquet Christmas market – 25th November 2017 – 7th January 2018; Lille Christmas market – 17th November – 27th December 2017. One of the loveliest markets is judged to be in St Quentin, famous for its beautiful Art Deco buildings 3rd – 31st December 2017.
