Manchester wins at Christmas. For 6 weeks you can visit the Manchester Christmas Market, which actually a string of markets located in over 9 different places around the city center. This was great as on a Saturday when we went, there was room to walk around and take time to look at stalls. The main market in Albert Sqaure can get quite busy as it’s the most enclosed and a more traditional German market full of food stalls, Gluwein stalls, and of course ornaments and other crafts.
Every once in a while we head out to do something not really knowing what to expect. This past Friday Adam’s dad invited us to a club he plays music at on Mondays, as they were having a Christmas Extravaganza. He wasn’t sure what to expect either and just said there will be some food and acts performing, including him and his friends playing music.
Last night was full of Christmas cheer in our house. We (I) decided we were going to get our Christmas tree. After the gym we stopped off at B&Q to nab a tree, but their tree section outside was closed “due to the high winds and hazards this was causing”. I was ticked. I wanted a tree.
Last year we headed to Scarborough as I’ve wanted to go absolutely ages. Our first stop (and main objective for the day) was Scarborough Castle, up on top of a huge hill. Now, if you are expecting a grand building, this one is not for you as it is literally a bit of the castle walls and a tower. If it’s the views that you are wanting, you can’t get much better.
