We visited the Christmas night market and it was indeed eclectic. Lots of food options, music, christmas treats! I particularly liked standing outside the church singing carols. A great start to the Christmas season.

This place has a great buzz about it. The food options are really varied and cater for Vegan, Veggie, Meat eaters alike, and finished off with coffee and cake. Great place to visit for lunch.
