Bath Christmas Lights 2020
Tuesday, 1st December 2020
Bath is the perfect cityscape to dress for the festive season so the Bath Christmas lights are always popular. It is already a beautiful place with the most wonderful architecture that any adornments will just add to.
Bath has long ditched any multi-coloured lighting opting for in-keeping white chandelier type lighting that suits its Georgian backdrop and denotes an air of class. It has also put pay to any celebrity switch on event opting for a quiet lighting up of the city’s main areas.
Milsom Street see’s the biggest Bath Christmas lights stretched right across this wide shopper’s mecca which always makes for an excellent picture, for those whose Instagram feed needs it….
Southgate shopping centre has annually themed lights on its now famous walkways it always a must see too, with a ‘Merry Christmas from Southgate’ that greets you at both the Brunel Square and Stall Street end.
In fact, many of the side streets or shopping areas have their own and quaint festive lights. See Walcot Street, Margaret’s Buildings, Kingsmead Square and Widcombe for more festive lighting.
Brunel Square bucks the trend with its multi-coloured and hugely joyous tree greeting visitors from Bath Spa abut The Bath Abbey area holds the biggest and best of the lights with the annual (and huge) Christmas tree installation in front of the Bath Abbey and Pump Rooms. A traditional tree with simple white lights that always looks impressive and with the Bath Christmas market missing this year, a much needed and special atmosphere.
We wish you a wonderful trip to Bath at Christmas.
