I went to the UK's fifth most popular Christmas market and it was literal hell – there's absolutely no point in going | The Sun

EVERYONE loves a Christmas market… don't they?

Well, it seems that not everyone's a fan – with one woman insisting there's "absolutely no point" in trying to visit the York Christmas market.

Beth explained that while the market is ranked number five in the UK's top Christmas markets to visit, it's just too busy to actually enjoy.

"If you're thinking to come into York Christmas market on a Saturday, can you just not?" she said in a video on her TikTok page.

"I'm gonna show you exactly what there's just absolutely no point.

And, as a resident of York, she bemoans the busy streets because it meant she "couldn't even get to McDonald's to get a hot chocolate".

"If I'm honest, York Christmas market isn't even that good," she continued.
