Ok, we can deny it if we want, but Christmas seems to be definitely happening again this year. Whether you embrace the season or not, one thing is clear: presents will need to be bought. If you’re looking for something a little unusual or just want to avoid shops in general, then why not visit one of the Christmas markets around town.

Ok, they’re calling this one a Christmas village rather than market, and with 100 stalls, food, drink and entertainment – who am I to argue? Until 23rd December: Monday to Saturday 11 am to 10 pm, Sunday 11 am to 8 pm
