Hyde Park Christmas Market (Winter Wonderland)
The Hyde Park market is officially named “Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.” Here you can find more than 100 stalls where you can buy Christmas goods and handicraft, and children and adults are free to use the ice rink available in the park. Entrance into the park is free, but if you would like to go ice-skating you will need to pay.
Metro: Hyde Park Corner
Southbank Centre Christmas Market
The Southbank Centre Christmas Market looks much like how we think a Christmas market should look. This is built in the typical German style with lots of stalls. In the middle of the market children can enjoy using the carousel while parents go shopping, drinking hot wine and maybe eating a big bratwürst or so on. This market is located not far away from London Eye.
Christmas at Covent Garden
If you would like to see nice decorations, a big reindeer and see all the typical Christmas market stuff, why not head over to the Covent Garden. There are also workshops on the spot, choirs singing Christmas songs and nice programs for old and young.
Metro: Covent Garden
There are of course many more Christmas markets around, but these are the two most authentic and important to see, if you visit London in the days before Christmas.
