Wow wow wow – isn’t it FREEZING outside!
In this post I wanted to talk about the beauty of Christmas/ festive markets and show come cute snaps of when I went recently.
So you’ve got all the big markets in London, like Winter Wonderland (The Beast) and the Embankment one, and all the others that pop up around Christmas time – there are loads all around the City. However, there will also be local ones new you which are worth checking out!
My boyfriend and I went to one in Knebworth House, and Hatfield House in Hertfordshire and they were much bigger than I expected. The thing I like about local fairs is that the stalls tend to be local companies/ traders so it’s nice to support them as local businesses.
So the grounds at Hatfield House are absolutely beaut, hence why I decided to stop for a quick few snaps – photos courtesy of the boyf! Well done lad 😉
There were so many different kinds of stalls. Stalls ranging from bakeries with lots of different cakes and pastries, to handmade jewellery and lots of stalls dedicated to Christmas.
Although it was only November when we went, it was so cold, which made it feel really christmassy and cute! There were so many cute instagrammable stalls that I had to take photos of.
How cute are these Besties twin mug pack!
Now, although we had a good time, I do think they rip you off a bit! To get into the Hatfield House one we had to pay £8 each as adults and then when you’re inside you obviously have to pay for everything additionally.
This is pretty funny, but we paid £7 for 2 hot chocolates which were literally expresso sizes! Absolute rip off, but still, we had a good time even if we were only there for an hour!
I think next time, my boyfriend wants to have a stand there selling his bespoke furniture/wooden items. If you’re interested in what he sells, you can take a look at the Etsy account 🙂
Have you visited any Christmas fairs/markets this year yet? I can’t wait to visit more 🙂
