Winchester Christmas Markets have always been on my list of places to visit and last Sunday I was lucky enough to enough to spend a day of festivities with my beautiful blogging girls Alice, Ami, Karis and Mandy and the lovely Becky joined us after randomly bumping into her. The famous markets are set out in the Winchester Cathedral grounds which are just stunning and so festive. We were visiting on the last day of the markets so as you can imagine it was very busy but it quietened down in the afternoon.
We took a wander around all the different stalls taking in all the yummy smells and beautifully unique decorations: I love all homemade little trinkets so as you can imagine I was in my element! There was something for everyone from mulled wine and roasted chestnuts, to toasted marshmallows and candy floss. I even picked up some chocolate wine for my Mum for Christmas after a bit of haggling with the sales guy – its the perfect present for her and she absolutely loved it luckily!
After a quick selfie with Baby Jesus and the nativity scene and a last minute dash round the stalls where I grabbed the most incredible smelling candle and a pomander garland which smells so spicy and christmassy (my rooms now smells incredible), we went for a bite to eat to have a proper catch up and talk about our favourite topic – makeup! Overall Winchester was beautiful and so festive, its without a doubt the best Christmas Markets I have been to and I will definitely be revisiting again next year!
