Liverpool is a great place to live in. For the last 4 years I lived in Liverpool and Wirral. There are so many interesting places and amazing events all year round. I was contacted by Travelodge and asked to talk about a hidden gem in Liverpool. I was delighted to get involved and talk about Liverpool.
Initially I thought of literally hidden gems, but I already blogged about them a few months ago. So I decided to talk about the Liverpool Christmas market as it fits well in the hidden gem category. Travelodge has a few hotels in Liverpool and 4 of them are in walking distance of the Christmas market.
The market takes place in the city centre, a busy location with plenty of shops and restaurants. I’ve been to the Christmas market for the first time a few years ago and it was fab, There were so many stalls with lovely gifts and food and mulled wine.
I’m going to share a few pictures of the things that can be bought from this year’s market.
There were lots of savoury food stalls and most of them aren’t vegetarian, but there was at least one option. I’m not bothered by this when I’m going to an event or market as I would rarely eat there anyway. I prefer going to a restaurant, it’s more comfy.
They had wooden carriages with letters on top and the trains could be personalized. There were wooden plaques and frames that also could be personalized. I think it would make a wonderful gift for a little one.
I saw this stall last year too. They had beautiful tree decorations made from ceramic. The lady who was selling them would personalize them there. I found one with penguins (dad, mum and kid) that would have been great for us.
Have you been to the Liverpool Christmas market? Do you do your Christmas shopping at markets?
