London Christmas Markets

If you’re staying with Q Apartments in London over the festive period there is no better way to spend a few hours getting into the Christmas spirit than by exploring one of London’s many Christmas markets.

The biggest and most popular is the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.  With an Ice Rink, a circus, giant wheel, Santa’s grotto, the Magical Ice Kingdom along with Christmas markets, an Ice Bar and food stalls there is something for all the family. Entry to the Winter Wonderland is free, however you will have to pay for most of the attractions and pre-booking is adviced.

If none of the attractions appeal to you there is also plenty of shopping to be had with a wide range of jewellery, accessories, handmade crafts, traditional Chrismas decorations and lots more!

The Christmas Market at the Tate Modern offers a more traditional affair for all the family and people of all ages.  Visitors are treated to pretty wooden chalets between the Tate Modern and the Thames as well as handmade wooden toys, unique jewellery and decorations. Christmas music, a carousel and goodies such as crepes, roasted nuts and a warming cups of gluhwein help add to the festive spirit.

At the Fair Christmas Fayre you can shop until your hearts content without any guilt as this annual fair sells ethical only gifts. This fair is the perfect place to pick up something unique, handmade, eco and vintage, that is sure to impress your loved ones overseas and at home.

The Monocle Christmas market is another gem not to be missed by our Q visitors.  Found in Marylebone, in the international news magazine and radio station of Monocle, this annual fair delivers a great international flavour.

Visitors can expect internationally inspired treats, gifts, activities as well as live music.  Santa and his reindeer provide a warm welcome to all the visitors, there are prizes up for grabs as well as great stalls for shopping. Entry is free and all donations will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
