V: 5th September 2020


Wanted to post this a while ago, but had a few priority things to post so finally here it is.

The past week I have had bad news followed by more bad news, and this same week it was my dads birthday….just all bad timing.

We booked this ages ago, as the last time we were here we loved it and thought my dad would like it to….and we couldn’t wait to go back.

The afternoon tea was served in “Peacock Alley” which has a great atmosphere for Afternoon Tea, catchups or even private meetings.

To save me typing it up, here is the pic

How good does this sound? just reading it made my mouth water.

The Afternoon Tea

As you saw from the above photo, it sounded amazing! and we all couldnt wait till it came out.

As you can see the presentation was really good.

The food from start to finish was perfect! it was the perfect amount and everything was very very tasty.

The best part which I really love is they gave clotted cream with the scones, this is the only way scones jam and cream should be served……top marks here!!!!

I cant fault this in anyway, everything was fresh tasty and the whole time spent there was so relaxing.

The staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive.

Edinburgh Christmas Market 2016

Visit Date : Friday 25th November

For the past few years I have always made a point, of going to Edinburgh to see the Christmas Market.

In my opinion the Edinburgh Christmas market is always 100% better, why? There are more stalls, better layout, the stalls are a lot more varied, and it looks and feels like a proper European Christmas Market.

The layout this year was a lot better, everything just flowed and helped make it look just that little better.

This year Edinburgh have the ice rink, as I have heard Glasgow and Edinburgh take turns. The ice rink can be found at St Andrews Square, the last time it was here there were a few stalls but this time round its just the ice rink.

Some items for sale are expensive, but if you do look about you will find some that are ok priced. I recommend the hot mulled wine while you walk about, keeps you warm and is very nice.

If you have only ever seen the Glasgow Christmas market, please do check out the Edinburgh one it’s a lot better and has a more festive feel and atmosphere.
