Bath has always had a special hold of those of us who love all things elegantly old fashioned, and the Bath Vintage and Antiques Sunday market means enthusiasts of yesteryear can pick up a bargain in style. The undercover market takes place on the last Sunday of every month at Green Park Station, and the chance to whittle away a quiet Sunday morning leafing through once treasured belongings should not be missed.
Many choose to make a weekend of it and opt for one of the oldest hotels in Bath, the Royal Hotel, making for a weekend full of the very best of Bath’s history. The market offers all manner of objects including vintage, antique and art, so be prepared to fall in love with something you’ll want to take home. Described as “a vintiquer’s heaven” by BBC Homes and Antiques’ Roasanna Morris, the market has become one of the city’s worst kept secrets and it’s a great place to find that special gift.
There’s always a friendly atmosphere at the market, and even a retro DJ filling the air with long forgotten tracks. The market offers furniture, vintage and retro clothing, paintings coins and much more every month – so go along and see if you have an eye for a bargain.
