7 must-go-to events across South Bank this winter
As we countdown to Christmas, London is bursting at the seams with places to eat, drink and be merry, but the choice can be somewhat overwhelming.
Thank goodness, then, for South Bank – London's one-stop shop for all your festive needs this Christmas. A pedestrianised zone, running from Lambeth Bridge to Blackfriar's Bridge and back away from the river to St George's Circus, the South Bank is abuzz with things to do, see, eat and buy this winter.
From a Finnish rooftop sauna and delicious lashings of mulled wine at Wintertime Festival, to sure-to-sell out family theatre and champagne receptions at NYE, long wintry nights are bright along the South Bank.

As the great outdoors becomes increasingly frosty and unwelcoming, the Southbank Centre's Wintertime Festival returns once more.
Taking on a Nordic spin this year, Wintertime Festival comes complete with a Rekorderlig cider lodge (serving lashings of mulled-wine and Scandinavian street food), a Finnish rooftop sauna and cosy Hygge-embracing gift-stalls.
Whether it's feasting, shopping, revelling late into the night or booking last-minute tickets to Slava's Snowshow – performed by a world-renowned company of clowns led by Slava Polunin – this seasonal wonderland is breathing a little bright light and a lot of festive cheer into the South Bank this winter.
