Giddy with excitement I got up at the crack of dawn on Sunday and then took one bus, two tubes and one train to get to Hampton Court. Kirstie Allsopp was presenting the first ever Handmade Fair and I knew it was going to be good, but I had no idea of how good. I’d decided not to partake of any workshops, having my fair fill of those whilst at Uni, I was there to soak up the atmosphere and to do a little light shopping.
I’d had a quick look as to how to get to Hampton Court once getting off the train and had noticed how far away the Fair had been placed away from the entrance, but had no idea of just how beautiful it would be to walk through the gardens.
And finally the entrance to the show. I’d had a lovely walk seeing the beauty of the gardens and was really looking forward to the day. As an aside I once went to a talk by Lucy Worsley, English Historian and Chief Curator of the Historic Royal Palaces and during it she had said Hampton Court was her favourite Palace, I’ve not been inside it yet, but I can see why and its on my to do list soon.
