My favourite Christmas market in London has to be the one at Southbank and the way it weaves and winds down the Thames. This year, it’s changed quite a bit. Many of the stalls have been moved off the main walkway and into a little Santa’s grotto-esque location laden with Christmas trees and fairy lights. Maybe it’s my imagination and I have a one track mind but there seems to be a lot less nic-nacs and a lot more food which is such a shame because it’s a great place to get some lovely little personal Christmas gifts!
Of course they still have the classic stalls for gingerbread, toffee apples and a cheeky chocolate fondue.
Max and I couldn’t restrain ourselves when we saw a stall selling duck, rocket and caramelised onion burgers with blue cheese as well as chips for under £10!
They were delicious and left our bellies full and our faces happy.
We slowly bimbled along the Thames, stopping off for a Mr Whippy ice-cream and made our way home in the freezing cold, regretting our choice of dessert.
