On their website, they've said;

"Few cities dive into the festive season as much as Salisbury does.

"Festivities begin in mid-November with the annual Christmas lights switch on event.

"Visit the Christmas House (Mompesson House) to see displays of how Christmas has been celebrated through the ages, and wrap up warm for some outdoor ice skating in the Guildhall Square.

"Once you’re all skated out, step off the ice into the Christmas Market and browse for a unique gift or the perfect festive tipple."

Locally, Winchester were voted 4th and Bath 5th.

Salisbury Christmas Market is open until the 6th January.
