Here are some photos of the market..
Charlie and the Fudge Cottage..
Yummy smelling orange and cinnamon stick string..
The market goes on for 18 days, spanning half of November and December, I think we will definitely be going back next year!
The town has definitely embraced the Christmas spirit, on the high street there were Morris dancers with bits of Christmas tree on their heads, carol singers, shops with holly garlands draped over their frontages, and excellent Christmas lights! Much better than Horsham, I can't believe it actually made the National news over it's poor show of lights, boo.. must try harder!
We grabbed a bit of lunch at a pub near the river, and old Ælfrēd the Great (wow, I just found out his Dad was called Æthelwulf, you can't beat that for a name!)..
and then went all touristy and visited the Winchester Castle Great Hall to see the Round Table..
check out my arty iPhone photography..
and with a bit of exploring out the back of the Great Hall, we found the army barracks..
a bit of a lucky find! Tanks in the car park, hehe..
Rather tempting.. I've always wanted a tank!
