While it may not be possible to travel back in time, there is one celebratory attraction that does a pretty good job of transporting visitors back in time.
The Victorian Christmas Market in Stratford-upon-Avon has over 300 stalls selling authentic Victorian clothing from vendors.
At the market, visitors can expect stalls selling festive street food, mulled wine, cider, and hot chocolate.
Other attractions include a traditional Victorian carousel ride, live music, choirs, dance groups and stilt walkers.
Visitors also have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and his reindeer.
While entry to the Christmas market is free, Brits have to pay for all their daytime shopping.
But visitors need to plan their break carefully as the market is only open for four days from December 7th, 2023 to December 10th, 2023.
The Victorian Market occupies several streets in Stratford-upon-Avon including Waterside, Bridge Street, Henley Street, High Street and Meer Street.
Stratford upon Avon is a two hour drive from London and 50 minutes from Birmingham.
There is also a train station with a direct link to Birmingham Moor Street station.
Holidaymakers have also been raving about the little-known Christmas market on Facebook in recent years.
One person wrote: “Love this place.”
While another said: “We go there every year and it’s great.”
A third person added: “I’ve already booked a hotel for this year, love the Christmas market.”
Last year, TikTok user Soph, known on the social media platform as sophsnextchapter, posted a video surrounding her visit.
The footage showed Wooden stalls decorated with Christmas lights, tinsel and baubles.
She said: “Honestly it was so festive and I’m so glad we went.”
But the Christmas market in Stratford-upon-Avon isn’t the only place where holidaymakers can take a trip back in time.
Beamish’s living museum in County Durham also gives visitors a glimpse of life between the 1820’s and 1950’s.
Here is the British city just 50 minutes from Stratford upon Avon that everyone should visit.
