Full list of UK Christmas markets going ahead as Leeds and Glasgow cancelled

Halloween is over and November has begun and while the weather may be turning colder that means the festive season is about to begin.

Now, you might think it's too early to whack out the Christmas lights, but it's never too soon to plan what events you want to go to.

Thankfully, most Christmas markets are free to attend and you don't need a ticket, but if you want to take part in some of the special events you need to think ahead.

There are plenty of festive markets opening up around the UK and some have extra special things to do that you need to book early.

These include the ice skating at Manchester's Christmas market and the Ice Bar in Nottingham where you'll sip tipples at -10 degrees (don't worry as coats and gloves are provided).

Unfortunately, some Christmas markets have been cancelled for 2022 with Leeds, Glasgow and Southampton announcing they would not go ahead in recent months.

The reasons behind the cancellations include not having the funds to run the events and operators pulling out of running the celebrations, reports claim.

But, you can still travel to another market – and it won't cost you a fortune if you take advantage of Travelodge's 450,000 rooms going from £8.75pp.
