I visited Chatsworth House to the Christmas markets with friends at the weekend and sampled my first mulled wine of the season and soaked in all the festivities. There was music, food, crafts and just the right amount of hustle and bustle! The only downside is the car parking cost (£20.00 on a weekend per car, ouch!). We opted not to visit inside the house due to lack of funds, but enjoyed exploring the markets and it well and truly got us into the spirit of Christmas! I hope these photos inspire you to get to your local Christmas markets and start getting festive!
