Christmas by the RiverOne of London's most picturesque festive markets, Christmas by the River is back for its fifth year in 2018. Taking place in London Bridge, the market, housed in wooden huts, boasts a backdrop of lovely London landmarks including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and City Hall and brings together over 50 stalls selling gifts, food and drink. Get ready for Christmas and join in with the free workshops on everything from food and drink tastings to glittery arts and crafts and storytelling.

 

About London Bridge

Up until 1750 London Bridge was the only bridge straddling the Thames and linking Southwark (the 'South Works') with Londinium. The bridge, in its various incarnations, has been built and re-built, destroyed by fire - three times - and sold since it was first constructed in 53 AD. More about London Bridge
