One of the great things about the holiday season in Europe – and the UK is no different – are all the great seasonal and Christmas Markets that pop up all over. Most of these markets spring up in late November and early December and run through the first of the year. However, I was happy to find the Winter Market at Southbank Centre is already underway and it is great and festive take on the already vibrant Southbank of the Thames.

About the Winter Market at London’s Southbank Centre:

“See Southbank Centre transformed this winter with magical family shows, markets, twinkling lights, festive fun and other seasonal delights. Eat, drink and be merry beside the River Thames with the return of our enchanting Winter Market and pop-ups, offering the very best in global street food, craft beers, cocktails, artisan gifts and more. Don’t miss our brilliant Christmas shows. Experience the thrills and daredevil entertainment of a turn-of-the-century circus including sensational animal puppetry, with Circus 1903. Or bring the kids to see Rumpelstiltskin, a fantastic fairy tale with theatrical spectacle, rocking music and supreme silliness.”

I have been having a great time touring around London and have tons of great things to post – but finding the time to do so is a challenge – so for now I am sharing some quick snapshots – like this one I took at the foot of St. Paul’s Cathedral – the grand dame of the City of London’s skyline for centuries – along with the more modern iconic phone booth.
