Christmas in York is kind of beautiful. I've loved the markets this year and since lectures have died down in the last couple of days of term, me and my housemate decided to take a trip into town to see the lovely markets.
What I love about them is the variety of stalls. (And the cute Chrimbo decorations) You could find a really high quality home-made pendant seller next to a cheese seller next to a puppet shop next to a painter! It's great and all the products are beautiful and really amazing.
The buskers in York are actually really talented, and there's always a few out in the same places. I think it really adds to the experience and it's always nice when you can hear actually nice music when browsing round shops, especially Christmas music round Christmas markets!
Holy Chocolate, these brownies looked insane! So many gorgeous flavours, spent a good 10 minutes trying to decide which one to get!
We also visited Thor's Christmas Teepee with a hot choccy and mulled wine. It was so lovely, and free to enter (too busy on weekends though so it was nice to pop in during the week) and it's a lovely warm teepee with a fire burning right in the middle and it's so cosy and lovely.
I really enjoy visiting Christmas Markets and now I'm up in York a lot of the time, I'm loving everything about it. The good thing about the York one I think, is that it's quite a bit smaller than most of the big city ones and during the week its considerably quieter (so much so that you can actually walk around without having to push past everyone) - saying that though, I'm desperate to visit the London ones!
Anyone been to any Christmas Markets yet this year?
