It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, I don’t mean Christmas – well, not really, as it’s only mid-November – but it’s that time of year when Exeter is transformed into a magical city full of lights, colours and mouth-watering scents! Christmas lights are twinkling all over town, and the Christmas Market is in full swing on the Cathedral Green. Discover the twinkling lights and Christmas delights in Exeter!
What a shame that pictures can’t capture the amazing aromas of coffee, churros, cupcakes, citrus, cinnamon, candy and crêpes – oh, the crêpes… Oh là là!
But first, the Christmas lights. They were lit on a very windy and rainy day, so I gave the switch-on ceremony a miss and photographed them the next evening instead. Aren’t they enchanting?
The annual Christmas Market opened on Saturday the 19th, and again it was a very rainy and blustery day (aka Storm Angus) – so I gave it a miss and explored the market on Sunday instead. It is open until the 18th of December, so I will definitely be dropping by again to sample more of all twinkling lights and Christmas delights in Exeter. Not to mention the delicious treats the Christmas Market has to offer! If you’re in the area, I highly recommend visiting Exeter right now – it is bound to get you into the holiday spirit.
