Christmas by the RiverOne of London's most picturesque festive markets, Christmas by the River is back for its fourth year in 2017. Taking place in London Bridge, the market boasts a backdrop of London landmarks including Tower Bridge, Tower of London and the City skyline and brings together 68 stalls selling gifts, food and drink. Traders include Studio Hop and Sian Eymur, selling boutique winter accessories; The Little Tibet, Turkish the Light and London Art Life, offering stockings and artisan gifts; and Jim & Tonic, The Lambassadors, Georgie Porgies Puddings and New England Seafood, serving up traditional food and drink. There will also be a range of workshops throughout the festive period.

 

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
