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.
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 (more info here), so I will definitely be dropping by again to sample more of all the delicious delights it 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!
