The historic square, which hosts an array of cafes, bars and restaurants, has been lit with festoon lights and golden spirals for all to enjoy.

Supported by HPH Ltd and Bath BID, the lights are also part of the Bath Christmas Light Trail.

Allison Herbert, Chief Executive of Bath BID said: “Bath is always magical at Christmas and this year is no exception.

“We are encouraging visitors to explore the whole city and perhaps discover places they might never have been to via the Christmas Light Trail.

“Businesses across the city have invested in brilliant showpieces to welcome you to Bath where you can shop, eat and drink and make the most of our entertainment and hospitality this season.”

Lindsay Holdaway, Managing Director of HPH Ltd added: “HPH are thrilled to be supporting the Square’s Christmas lights which we hope will be uplifting and bring cheer to locals and visitors alike as they enjoy the variety and quality of the businesses here in one of Bath’s largest concentrations of independents.”

Businesses in Kingsmead Square will have a variety of seasonal offerings, including spiced hot chocolate and mince pies, mulled cider, cheese and cranberry toasties and discounts during the festive period.

This year’s Christmas lights are fundraising for Children’s Hospice South West during the charity’s 30th year.

Businesses will be displaying a QR code that visitors can scan to donate.

Mission Burrito will also donate 30p from every Christmas Chicken & Chorizo special burrito sold between 13th – 24th December in Bath and Bristol.
