Christmas markets are very popular over here in the UK and almost every weekend from end of Nov til Christmas you can find a Christmas market that you can visit. Last year we attended one in London this year we went a bit further away to Rochester to visit their Christmas market and see their Cathedral and castle.
This Cathedral was built originally by the Normans
Beautiful organ. We even heard a bit of music as the choir was practicing for the evening service.
Original (13th Century) painting found on one of the walls in the church.
This year the theme of the market was Dickens, there were a few people wearing costumes of the early Victorian period
By the time we found Santa we were told we needed to make an appt and it would be 2 to 3 hours. So we moved on to other things.
Several fair rides but we restricted the kids to each picking only one ride each as they were very expensive!
I am taking the week between Christmas and New Year off to spend some quiet time at home with just my family.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
