Canterbury Christmas Markets

One of my favourite things about Canterbury at Christmas is the Christmas markets. I never end up buying anything, but it’s lovely to see Whitefriars outdoor shopping centre filled with log cabin-style market stalls. There’s always food stalls, a Christmas jumper stall and there’s even a Santa’s Grotto this year for kids.

I like the fact that some local businesses have stalls in the Christmas markets. Canterbury is very good for promoting producers in the Kent county.

If I wasn’t a student and saving pennies, I’d definitely have picked up some of the delicious food. There’s always mulled wine, festive nuts and other Christmas-themed delights!

I only had a short time to see the Christmas markets, as I went into town in the evening after University one Saturday. I’d love to have gone with friends and spent more time soaking up the festive atmosphere.

Do you have Christmas markets in your local area?
Thanks for reading my blog today.

    Christmas markets are Defo one of the top favs at Christmas, the lights, the smell of the roasted nuts and mulled wine oh and the churros! I agree, it's just a lovely atmosphere! Although being in London, it could get a little bit too crowded, but nevertheless festive!
