On November 17th - 24th of December check out the Portsmouth City Centre Bavarian Christmas Market

In amongst the pretty cabins, decorated in festive Christmas lights, you can come and browse some of the offers they have on sale ranging from stocking fillers and presents, through to speciality gifts and presents such as personalised Christmas tree decorations and Santa stockings.

And once you’ve found those special gifts and treats for loved ones and friends, and have shopped until you’ve dropped, why not then have a break and take some time to refuel with a Bratwurst from the Bavarian sausage grill.

Or simply meet up with some friends and shelter from the bleak midwinter over a warming cup of Gluwein.

Open daily from 10am until 6pm.
