The UK’s Great Christmas Markets Destination 2017

Many people wonder where to go to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve in the UK. While we have a host of special festive activities at our Compass Hospitality Hotels, here is our guide to what else is going on across the country.

Undeniably, Christmas Markets are the go to festive hub for many people in December. Originating in the German speaking regions of Europe in the Late Middle Ages, with the very first taking place in Bautzen in 1384! Christmas Markets are now popular throughout the world, including many key UK locations.

Christmas in Manchester

If you are feeling festive, Manchester is the place to be this December. For modern comfort only 5 miles from Manchester City Centre, The Victoria Hotel is your ideal base to explore the festivities. For more information about what the hotel is up to this December, click here!

The Manchester Christmas market spreads across the city center, including some 300 traders offer mouth-watering international food, drinks and delicately crafted Yuletide gifts in the heart of this buzzing city. Furthermore, the family friendly site on Cathedral Gardens has its own ice rink, so plenty to keep the kids happy.

What we can’t wait to eat and drink in 2017
A cup or two of nice warm Mulled wine never go wrong with Christmas. Last year blackberry and apple mulled wine or an Amaretto and strawberry blend from The Mill made an appearance. Who know what brew will surprise us this year!

Chinese New Year in Bangkok 2015!

Life never stops giving us a reason to celebrate, especially when living in such a multi-cultural world! Just last weekend, Bangkok city enjoyed Valentine’s Day and right after the period of romance, we enter into Chinese New Year! So to celebrate this occasion, some of our hotels have organised dining promotions to welcome the Year of the Goat!

Dim Sum is a style of Southern Chinese – Cantonese or Hokkien – food that is prepared as bite-sized pieces in small steamer baskets or small plates. The actual Dim Sum itself is wrapped in see-through rice flour or wheat starch sheets and within this wrap can be many things ranging from beef, chicken, pork, prawns, to vegetables.

11th Avenue Café at Grand Swiss

The 11th Avenue Café of the Grand Swiss Hotel Bangkok also has a special offer under this theme but rather than being a buffet, you can enjoy Dim Sum and refillable hot tea as a set lunch.

dim sum set lunch
The Dim Sum Set Lunch served at the 11th Avenue Café of the Grand Swiss Hotel Bangkok.

The atmosphere here is a little different to the Bodega Restaurant as it is entirely indoor dining in a uniquely designed restaurant decorated with artwork from the North of Thailand. A set is also at a slightly lower price of THB 199 net per person that you can enjoy within the span of 11.30 am – 3 pm.

Price: THB 199 net / person
Location: 7th Floor, Grand Swiss Hotel Bangkok
