If you know me, you'll know that I have a soft spot for Winchester. I spent three years down there doing my degree and I fell in love with the place. I'm dying to move back and I can't wait until the day I finally get a job there. I still have a couple of friends down there and I went down at the end of November to see them.
While I was there, I stayed with my friend Alex and we spent the Saturday morning getting piercings (her nose and my daith) before having a wander around the Christmas market. Winchester's Christmas market is on a lot smaller scale than the one in Birmingham and is a mixture of European and local stall holders. The market is on for a total of four weeks but after the first two, they switch the stalls over.
Visiting the market really got me in the Christmas spirit! Although I didn't buy anything, it was nice just to have a look around and take in the sights and smells of Christmas. It was also so lovely to see my favourite city lit up.
