A Quick Trip to Hitchin

If only all shopping days could be like this!

Hitchin is one of my favourite towns to go shopping in. It’s not too big yet not too small, and has a great selection of both chain and independent retail stores, as well as plenty of places to eat and drink. It’s also one of the more picturesque towns in the area, having retained its original cobbled market square and many period buildings.

I’d booked a return journey with Take Me home James to come pick me up at 9.30am, and sure enough, at half past nine, I heard a knock at the door. I was presented with a very smartly dressed driver, who greeted me, and helped me to the car. The drive to Hitchin was very smooth, and the journey very enjoyable. My driver was ever so attentive, and I felt in very safe hands at all times.

Once we’d reached town and parked up, my driver confirmed the return journey pick-up point and time, and headed off.

First thing was first – a cup of coffee! As I said, Hitchin is blessed with a large number of eateries, but my personal favourite is Halsey’s delicatessen in the market square, home to the famous Halsey’s pasty. After a quick refuel, it was onwards to the market. I find it sad that so many http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/anticonvulsant/ local town markets are a mere shadow of what they used to be, but Hitchin market is still going strong, selling everything from fruit and veg, to electric goods and bric-a-brac. After I’d got what I wanted, I headed down the high street to pick up a few more necessities (along with a cream donut from Simmons the bakers!).

I still had a bit of time to kill, so seeing as it was such a nice day, decided to sit by the river in front of St Mary’s church (I knew that donut would come in handy!).

Soon it was time to meet up with my driver, and once again, he showed up right on time. He took my bags and placed them in the boot for me, then helped me into the car again. Before I knew it I was back outside my house, where the driver helped me in, along with all my bags. I really couldn’t have asked for a better level of service! What a lovely day out!
