Christmas in the City
There are some real Christmas Market weekend getaway gems, but with being so busy getting ready for the festive season, why not take the planning pressure off and stay at home?
People travel from all around the world to experience the magic, sparkle and twinkle of the season in London and we have it all on our doorstep.
Here are a couple of my favourite markets and where to experience the best winter brrrrrrrunch close by.
Festive romance abounds!
In this historical part of London, you’ll find an experience in a part of town you might not always get to.
Travel to Greenwich by boat and experience London from the Thames. You’ll dock and then an easy walk into town through picturesque streets.
The market boasts over 100 stalls with all kinds of interesting things to add to your presents pile for the holidays.
Avoid the chain restaurants and go for something British like The Rivington bookings essential for brunch. Tuck into the full English or benedict with the perfect pot of tea or a glass of festive bubbles.
Better known for tennis but actually a lovely little slice of British life on the south-west side of London.
They are hosting 12 days of Christmas in the Piazza throughout December, with stalls brimming with all kinds of lovely ideas as stocking fillers.
Pop into Brew for brunch, it’s definitely a favourite and still only in a couple of locations in London, so hasn’t become chain dead.
The holiday season is alive with cheer and definitely large doses of romance.
Make your festive date one to remember, surprise your partner with something different.
The interesting thing about London is that there are always stylish surprises around every corner. Dame Natalie Sara Massenet, Founder, Net-a-Porter
