The Christmas Market takes places at the top of Steep Hill, which at its steepest is a 1:7 gradient. Therefore if you are arriving in the city by a timetabled bus service or train, you may wish to either walk up or down the hill to the event. Steep Hill, which won Britain’s best street in 2012, is lined with local independent businesses and therefore there is plenty to see on your way up. Alternatively there will be a variety of local bus services available which can take you to the event. More details on these services will be available nearer the time.
