What do I need to bring?

We suggest you bring some spending money with you to grab a few Christmas presents from the market or to get a glass of mulled wine!

Please also remember to dress appropriately for the weather. Hats, scarf and gloves would be a great idea.

We would also advise you to bring a small packed lunch or some money to buy yourself lunch.
