Salisbury Christmas Market

Oops a week seems to have vanished!
Last Friday as part of our ‘German’ theme we took a trip to Salisbury to visit the Christmas market.  The sun came out for us and it was a lovely day.  Had never been to Salisbury, only through it, but instantly liked the place and I think a trip back to the museums is definitely in order at some point.

The train ride featured appropriate reading and a Christmas activity book.

We visited the Cathedral which is stunning.  I don’t like taking photos inside so didn’t get one of the font but Sam was very taken with it.

Sam as an elf!  Actually it’s a liberty cap.  He did point out the irony of US being called the ‘Land of the Free’!
