London Christmas Fairs

Christmas Market at Tate Modern London


Where: Bankside, London
Dates: 20th November – 23rd December 2015

Pretty wooden chalets will fill the space between the Tate Modern and the Thames once more in 2015 for this traditional Christmas market. Browse handmade wooden toys, unique jewellery, intricate decorations and plenty more, then tuck into bratwurst, crêpes, roasted nuts or a warming cup of glühwein. A carousel and festive music help add to the Christmas spirit.


Christmas in Belgravia
