A trip down Borough Market at Christmas

When three friends meet up four days before Christmas, and the only pre-requisite is it must be to do something Christmassy, Borough Market is a great shout! 

For those that don't know, Borough Market is all about the food; cheese, chutneys, olives, and every type of meat, from pheasant to rabbit, reindeer to lobster, it all send your senses into overdrive when you walk in. Then there are the subtle undertones of freshly baked bread and street food simmering away ready to feed an army. 

We went there with one thing on our mind; to wrap our cold hands around warm cups of mulled wine as we ambe around the stalls and buy a few last minute presents. So, with £3.50 well spent, around we went, with the cash burning a hole in our pockets. 

It's so nice when you're not in a rush, or on the look out for something in particular, it just allows you to browse, and that's often when the ideas such as a nice little hamper, or a starter for Christmas dinner emerge. 

After we'd seen all there was to see (it's not a massive market), we finally gave into our grumbling tummies and set our sites on lunch. 

Then it was time to find a nice pub to settle in and warm up a bit. We popped into the local Wheatsheaf and found a cute little table tucked away in the corner, near the radiator no less. And, of course, it was time to greedily sip down our second mulled wine of the day. The little mini ale glasses they came in were so cute too. 

It really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas now, so if you still need a nudge in the right direction, Borough Market is definitely a great place to start!
