The market is packed. Busses bring folks in from around the area. The large coaches are decorated and parked everywhere.

I heard it was the second largest Christmas Fair in England, and runs for two weeks. It stretches from Kingston Sq (the former cloisters) to the Abbey Green and down several streets, as well as being in the Guildhall. It’s really a large fair and I hope I can get back there. There didn’t seem to be too much interesting items on display, mostly candles and other Christmas junk but there were a few good free samples. I went for the food and bought a “Grand Marnier crepe” out of curiosity. They put the alcohol in at the end so it didn’t evaporate.
