Pressure is being put on Bath to cope with huge crowds because of its Christmas market’s popularity, it is claimed.
Traders have complained about too many people attending, with one stallholder even asking for shoppers to stay away.
On Saturday more than 20,000 turned up, causing gridlock and problems with chip-and-pin card readers.
Bath’s business improvement district manager said the market had not become too busy, and it was good for trade.
The annual market in Abbey Churchyard, which began in 2002, features more than 150 traditional wooden chalets, each selling gifts and food. Coachloads of tourists come from all over the UK to see it.
