Surrounded by the historical University buildings, the market is a wonderful experience with choirs singing carols, colourful decorations brightening wooden stalls and the aroma of mulled wine drifting in the air. After some free time to browse the market we continue a short distance to the Hilton Hotel in Abingdon where we stay for the next two nights.

The Great Court will be turned into a market village featuring 80 chalets selling hand-picked gifts and tempting treats, and as night falls, you will be immersed into a magical winter wonderland as the formal gardens are illuminated with a spectacular display of lights - a wonderful sight not to be missed!
