Birmingham Christmas Market
Last year I wrote a blog post on Christmas on campus, mentioning all the cool things that happened (PAIS Christmas party, the tree in the library, Christmas meals at Xananas, etc)
Living off-campus this year meant I could explore other areas during this festive period; Leamington, Coventry and Birmingham!
Last weekend, I visited the Birmingham Christmas Market with my flatmate from last year, which was fab.
The market and shopping centre is right near New Street Station, which takes about 20/30 mins from Coventry. The trains are extremely frequent (one every 10/15 mins) so we bought our tickets last minute. They are approx £3.50 during the day, and around £2.85 in the evening, so definitely worth going if you have the time!
The market was fab but super busy (not a good idea going on a Saturday!) so rather difficult to get a good photo:
Living off-campus really gives you an opportunity to explore other local areas so definitely make use of the year or two you are living out!
