Visiting Market Harborough

Having graduated from university, my friends are now dispersed all over the UK. So last weekend, I packed my bags and headed up north to Market Harborough, where I spent 3 days catching up with old friends, exploring a new town, and of course indulging in lots of delicious food:

In many ways, it was a magical weekend. Snow had yet to hit London, but as soon as I stepped off the train in Market Harborough, I was greeted with the sight of snowflakes gently falling in the darkness. It couldn't have be more different. The next morning, we woke up to heavy snowfall, and everything was covered in a beautiful layer of fluffy white snow.

We had originally planned to drive into Leicester for some shopping, but worried about road conditions, we decided to walk into town centre a spot of lunch instead. The temperature was absolutely freezing, but I thought it was a really picturesque walk, and Market Harborough felt so quaint with all the little shops and boutiques.

 Lunch was in homely little cafe, and I loved the feeling of being all warm and cosy inside, whilst it was cold and snowing outside. The food was a bargain too, and my salad was so big that even I struggled to finish it!

We were joined by my boyfriend later that evening, and the hosts treated us to a delicious slow roast pork, before settling down to watch 'Seeking a friend for the end of the world'. I won't spoil the movie for you, but I will say the ending was rather unexpected and I can't decide if I actually liked the movie or not.

All too soon, it was the end of the weekend, and time to head back to London. But not before a pub lunch, followed by a long afternoon walk and of course, a snowball fight! If you live around Market Harborough, then I'd highly recommend Oat Hill pub. The decor was modern with a touch of shabby chic, staff were friendly and helpful, and most importantly the food was absolutely delicious.

Have you ever been to Market Harborough? What did you get up to last weekend?
