Manchester isn’t that far away from me, it only takes me an hour on the train and if I book tickets in advance then I can get a really cheap fare as well, but I almost never visit! The weekend  before Christmas, Rachel invited me along to the Mercure Piccadilly to visit the Manchester Christmas Markets and explore the city.

In typical Hayley fashion, I’d forgotten a few of the essentials when I was packing for my weekend away, so as soon as I got to Manchester Piccadilly station my first stop was Boots to buy a toothbrush, toothpaste and eyeshadow while I waited for Rachel’s train to get in. We then had quite a bit of time before we were due to meet everyone at the hotel, so we dropped our suitcases off and headed to the Northern Quarter for some food from Almost Famous.
