Exploring Bristol Christmas Market

Yesterday I visited The Bristol Christmas market with my dear friend Jamie from Explore with Ed. Here's what to expect if you're planning on paying it a visit!
We decided to drive there from Cardiff and found parking in the Cabot Circus car par which is a fairly reasonably priced place to park and it's got the added bonus of being smack bang in the centre. The other option is to catch a train or bus (depending on where you're coming from).
We wandered around the city mixing between highstreet stores and market stalls until we stopped for lunch at Boston Tea Party (A favourite of Jamie's but I had never been before). Jamie went for a classic; eggs Benedict, while I went for a goats cheese & beetroot salad. Although I normally love a bit of meat, I felt like a change and the goats cheese and pecan nuts were calling me! Food was delicious, I shall definitely be returning! We then walked back into the centre and continued browsing.
As the light dimmed the market really came alive! Even though it was a Tuesday there was a great atmosphere and it was pretty busy! Pictured below to the left are some flavoured coffee beans including blueberry, French vanilla and Amaretto. On the right are some tools made out of chocolate! 
I bought a couple of bits and bobs for loved ones and then we ended our day with a hot drink at the German bar with some yummy treats! We shared a cherry & cream mini pancake mountain (pictured below) and a pack of pecan nuts. 
12,000 steps later and our day trip to the Bristol Christmas Market was complete! Lots of wonderful gift ideas (or treats for yourself) to be discovered there. Are you planning on going to any Christmas markets this year?
