Christmas Market Roundup November 11, 2018 08:44
We do love buying Christmas presents - picking something that’s just right for the recipient and then watching their face when they open it! Every year we try to buy as many handmade and locally sourced gifts as possible, supporting small independent businesses along the way. Our favourite place to shop is at craft markets - there is such a great variety, you can do all your Christmas shopping in one hit, and get in the festive spirit at the same time! We have rounded up some of our favourite London christmas markets below....
