Top 5 Christmas markets to visit in London

Published: 19 Dec 19

Is it even Christmas until you've had a mosey round a beautiful Christmas market, mulled wine in hand, on a cold winter's evening? We think not! Here's our top recommendations for markets to check out this season:

 

🎄 LEICESTER SQUARE CHRISTMAS MARKET 🎄

In the heart of the capital, iconic Leicester Square has been given a festive makeover this Christmas. During the holiday season, you’ll find a buzzing European-style Christmas market setup in the central gardens, transforming the square into a pop-up village filled with yuletide treats. Combined with a line-up of spectacular shows and performances courtesy of Underbelly entertainment, the tourist centre seems to be the place to be this season.

Open until 5th January 2020

 

🛍️ WESTFIELD LONDON WINTER VILLAGE 🛍️

If you’re heading over to the West London shopping centre for a spot of Christmas shopping, you might as well stop by their sparkling Christmas Market to treat yourself. You’ll find Christmas cabins offering confectionary, hand-crafted gifts and accessories, alongside festive street food, mulled wine and tonnes more tasty treats. Plus, you can enjoy a Christmas drink or two with live DJ sessions every night of the week at the Après bar.

Open until 24th December 2019

🎅 GREENWICH CHRISTMAS MARKET 🎅

You can visit Greenwich Market all year round, but at Christmas time the marketplace is draped in tinsel and festive lights, perfect for moseying round with a mulled wine in hand. With up to 120 individual stalls plus music, street food & a Santa’s Grotto, you’ll be spoilt for choice at the World Heritage site. The day time market is open late until 8pm each Wednesday up until Christmas, making sure you’re well kitted out before Santa arrives.

Open until 24th December 2019

 

❄️ WINTER WONDERLAND ❄️

Have you noticed we’re big fans of Winter Wonderland at Chapter? There’s just so much going on we can’t help but rave about it. Flooded with over 100 fairy-lit cabins, the Angel’s Market offers every trinket, decoration and personalised gift under the sun. Combine that with the traditional German food market, fairground and Bavarian Beer Hall and you’re sorted for the day. It’s open from 10am but is most impressive when the sun goes down – trust us!

Open until 5th January 2020

 

🌉 CHRISTMAS BY THE RIVER 🌉

Imagine a vintage ski-themed market against the gorgeous backdrop of an illuminated Tower Bridge – that’s Christmas by the River at London Bridge City. One of the capital’s most picturesque markets is home to a quaint collection of snow-dusted huts filled with boutique vendors, scrummy festive tasters and mulled wine. You’ll also find a calendar of live music, free events and workshops, from Christmas jumper decorating to festive wreath making – you won’t want to miss this one.

Open until 5th January 2020
