Magic Christmas markets in London
Christmess, Borough, will be opened on November 15th. Christmess is a place for adults. The action takes place in a parallel universe where Christmas is canceled, and Santa Claus hides a group of rebellious elves at the revolutionary headquarters, which is masked as the factory for the destruction of gifts. Representation is carried out in an abandoned warehouse, the top floor of which serves as a platform for Christmas parties. And below you can find a market that sells works of independent London designers.
Wintertime Festival, Greenwich, will be opened on December 1st. This Christmas market is not cheap: in the evening admission here for adults is £18. To justify the price, the organizers promise an ice show from professional skaters on the indoor skating rink, live music and street performances. But unfortunately, to meet Santa Claus or skate, you will have to pay extra. If you decide to buy tickets, here is the fair's website.
Southbank Winter Festival, will be opened on November 10th. This bright Christmas fair will be opened not far from London Eye one of the first. Street food vendors on Southbank street will add holiday ingredients (for example, processed cheese) to the menu, and in cozy wooden houses it will be possible to buy gifts and trinkets.
