Christmas markets: the most interesting for you

There are many food experiences to enjoy during Christmas time in London, especially the magnificent Christmas markets.

Sagitter One chose some of the most interesting for you.

From the big Christmas Market at Winter Wonderland to the Southbank Centre Winter Market, find the perfect food Christmas gift! Other main Christmas markets are Tate Modern Christmas Market, Greenwich Market and Kingston Christmas Market. Here you can find delicious gifts like chocolate, biscuits, cupcakes, sweets and so on.


A very British tradition to carry on, especially in this period, is the afternoon tea. Have a relaxing time with a cup or two of fine English tea with a selection of sandwiches, pastries and cakes. You can enjoy it in the fairy atmosphere of The Ritz Hotel, at the Grosvenor House or at Lutyen’s Lounge, in beautiful Bloomsbury.

In Christmas time many restaurants create into the menu limited edition hamburgers and sandwiches. You can try Dinde de Noel at Paul, a baguette with turkey, smoked bacon and cranberries or the Festive Full Works Baguette at Eat.

Obviously each year in this period most restaurants create a special menu for the Christmas day. Bill’s, an English restaurants chain, create two different menus, the Merry Christmas Menu and the Winter in Wonderland menu. Here you can try traditional English dishes like many kind of puddings.

Would you like to immerse yourself in a mountain atmosphere? You don’t need to venture the Alps for an apres-ski experience! London is plenty of cool, cozy winter bars that are ski-lodge themed, one of these is the Apres Ski Lodge at The London Edition Hotel, a wintry bar only available for large group bookings, charming but very expensive. Another option is Bodo’s Schloss in Kensington, an Alpine cabin where you can enjoy traditional Austrian cuisine.
