Where To Go at Christmas Time

Tuesday, 12 December 2017

There are always plenty of things to go out and do or see in the run up to Christmas. So much so that it can be slightly overwhelming and stressful to try and fit in everything that you want to do. I'm sure there are events that may stick out to some of you, but if you're still unsure on how to spend your free time as Christmas approaches, here are some ideas of things that you could be doing...

Visiting Garden Centres
I can tell what you're probably thinking... Amber, really? But garden centres are the best places to go to feel all kinds of festive. They are filled to the brim with Christmas decorations, lights, ornaments, foliage, and even things like craft kits, or cute little cafes.  Whether you wanted to pop in just for a look, or you are looking for something specific, try your local garden centre - I'm sure you'll be completely surprised!

Christmas Markets
Nothing beats walking around with a bobble hat, a knitted scarf, and a hot chocolate whilst browsing all of the little wooden huts, filled with yummy treats, and hand made goods. Christmas markets bring all of the Christmas festive-ness, and are a great place to go with friends or loved ones.

Visiting Christmas Lights
If you live in an estate, or live close to one, there will most definitely be houses covered in Christmas lights. Going for a walk and spotting all of the houses that look like Christmas has thrown up on them, is another thing that you could do to feel festive. Where some houses like to keep it subtle and others like to go a bit further and raise as much as they can for charity - go and see which lights are your favourite.

Starbucks and Costa
Treat yourself to a once a year, Christmas menu drink. If you get a coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc, on a daily basis, then why not switch it up and have something Christmas inspired! Not only that, but the Christmas cups are adorable.

Where's your favourite place to visit around Christmas time?
