Wealthy old ladies, colourful street urchins, rosy landlords and tramps in rags wander off the pages of Dickens and onto the streets of this old port town to lend a theme to the annual Christmas market, so as well as around 200 stalls selling gifts and tasty Dutch treats you get the ghosts of Christmas Past and Present offering you a sample of gingerbread. It all takes place around the historic dockside area where the houses most fit eith the theme and the characters fit right in.
