Family Day Out in Cambridgeshire.. ♥

On Sunday I went with my parents to visit a couple of little towns in Cambridgeshire. We like to just wonder around and look at different pretty places, visit new shops, and eat some delicious food! First we went to a market town called March, which is just a little place with a river and a few shops. It was a really cold day, so I had to wear my big bulky coat!
We walked around for a bit, and I found the most beautiful window display that belonged to the RSPCA charity shop. I was so excited that I forgot to take a photo, but the display was obviously British themed, with tea cups hanging from the ceiling, cake stands, and some of the most beautiful tea cup and saucer sets I’ve ever seen! The teacups were going for around £8, and I really wanted one, but because we visited on a Sunday the shop was closed 🙁 I was so gutted!
After we finished in March, we drove over to Ely, which is another town in Cambridgeshire that we visit quite often because we like it there. Mainly I visit for the amazing antique shop! It’s called Waterside Antiques, and it’s right next to the river. It is a huge old three-storey building, each floor is filled with gorgeous antiques. The prices are very reasonable too. I wanted to buy a Victorian heavy duty wooden chest of drawers which were £195, it was in great condition, and chest of drawers from Argos sell for as much! Dad said we couldn’t get it in the car though, nor up the stairs at home! lol
I did buy a few things from the second hand shops there, which I will show you in my next post 🙂 We also went to a pub restaurant for lunch. It was so yummy! I had a burger with bacon and Stilton cheese, and chips. It was so good. We even shared a warm chocolate and caramel fudge cake dessert! A-mazing.

    I live in Cambridgeshire as well (in a village called Fordham) and I must visit this antiques shop you were talking about in Ely! And what was the pub you went to for lunch? Sounds familiar! xx
