Walked through eyre square this morning,the Xmas village certainly brightens it up. Lots of wonderful stalls with amazing products, although some a bit pricey. Well worth a visit this xmas
This is a great facility to have in a lovely city. Alot of people meet there friends there for a chat or tolie out in under the sun. You can have a lovely picnic or a sandwich there. Loads of shops bars and places to eat around it.
The Christmas markets have just opened and Eyre Square is well worth a visit to see them. Try go when you are hungry and thirsty. Loads of different stalls and things to taste. Very well laid out with plenty of space.
This is a great place to walk around and do your shopping, there is a 'normal' mall in the middle that we stumbled along, then more shopping, food, Mcdonalds, you name it :) Save a whole day or more,
