As we begin to step into the winter months, the Christmas lights begin to show on street lights and the ‘XMAS TREES’ signs begin to pop up on the street sides. However, no Christmas is truly complete without an abundance of trinkets, mulled wine, and merry music at the Christmas Fair. We thought we would round up London’s best Christmas markets for you, to make sure you do not miss out on the festive fun available in the Capital this year.
Leicester Square Market
One of the newer additions to the Christmas Market scene, Leicester Square will feature its own little Santa’s grotto, with a Spiegeltent, market stalls, and food trucks all lit up with chasing lights.
The market will be taking place from Friday November 11th through till January 8th.
The Swedish Church Christmas Fair
If you are looking to embrace the Scandinavian style of Christmas, then this church in Marylebone is definitely worth a stop. They will be offering all sorts of Scandinavian treats, crafts and gifts, as well as the Swedish take on mulled wine: Glögg.
This market will be running in the Swedish Church in Marylebone from November 17th until November 20th.
Christmas Market at Tate Modern
The Tate Modern is always known as an artistic hub, and every winter they offer their own unique twist on a Christmas market. They have plenty of handmade wooden toys, unique jewellery, intricate decorations and more. If you are more on the peckish side, they have plenty of traditional Christmas food, warm drinks, and festive music to help it all go down.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
This list would not be complete without Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. One of the largest Christmas markets in London, this has plenty of fun rides, market stalls, and great food to choose from.
There is also lots of handmade gifts and trinkets and confectionary sold from homely wooden huts.
This will run from Friday 18th November until January 2nd
Real Food Christmas Market
For the real food fans, there is a Real Food Christmas market which sources the best in festive foods from ethical and sustainable productions. You’ll find Christmas puddings, food hampers, continental cheeses and much more. You will probably have a taste sensation you never thought was possible.
