This week we added a little Christmas magic to our day with a trip to Beckworth Emporium to enjoy their Christmas market and a indulge in a treat from their wonderful café.
The Emporium certainly lives up to its name; it is filled with all kinds of everything and at Christmas it is truly wonderful. We had a lot of fun, the atmosphere was decidedly festive, with Christmas music and the aroma of mince pies and chocolate in the air.
Garden centres have come a long way from their humble beginnings selling plants and compost, they offer the perfect location for a day out with friends; lots to see, a delicious array of artisan foods and a café serving a wide menu of breakfasts, lunches, and cakes, we do love their cakes.
Our visit was a complete success, we ate too much, we spent too much, and we were all ready for an afternoon nap on out return, but there was no time for that, we had wrapping to do.
The big day is so close now and we have much to look forward to, we hope that your Christmas is as special as ours is going to be.
