If you're planning to go Christmas shopping this weekend, there's really no need to venture further than Hitchin.
Whatever you're looking for, you will find it here and you'll have the joy of browsing through some interesting, individual stores at the same time.
There are plenty of places for breakfast before you start, a coffee at 11am, lunch and supper. Take a break in one of the local cafes or restaurants for the very best refreshments.
Wherever you park, just walk towards the main square and see who's got stalls and children's entertainment out on that particular day. Then, simply walk along one of the streets off the square until you find what you're looking for.
Don't miss the market, Hermitage Road and Bancroft and all the side roads. Follow @louiseyexley on Twitter for the latest offers from shops and restaurants, too.
Hitchin has so much to offer: don't miss out on it all!
