Which UK Christmas markets are the most Instagrammable?

Despite Christmas markets often being associated with Germany, they have grown to become popular all over the world, and more specifically in Europe and the US. Recent findings state that Budapest, in Hungary, is voted the best European Christmas market, but seeing as though Christmas markets have expanded outside of Europe, it begs the question as to which one gets the most visitors?
