The markets littering the Southbank spill out their golden treats and gifts to passing visitors, with hot winter drinks and Scandinavian street food, open until 10pm during the week and 11pm on weekends.
This year, Southbank Centre's Winter Market will feature 30 Nordic-inspired chalets filled with street food and potential presents. There will be all manner of food on offer, from vegan street delicacies to traditional holiday favourites like bratwurst, pies, and mulled wine.
The Bar Under the Bridge will return to Southbank Centre for its second year, bringing together unique brews cultivated by The Hop Locker and the gourmet fried chicken of ParmStar for the ultimate street food experience.
Alternately, you can have dinner in a real-life snow globe at Jimmy's Lodge, the pop-up restaurant where guests can look out over the Thames from the safety of their very own glass igloos.
