London Bridge Market - Christmas by the River

London Bridge Market - Winter Dream

This December, London’s most picturesque Christmas market returns to the banks of the River Thames for its fourth year. Set against the backdrop of some of London’s most loved landmarks, London Bridge City’s Christmas by the River will run from Thursday 30th November to Wednesday 3rd of January


With stunning views of Tower Bridge, The Tower of London and the iconic City skyline, Christmas by the River is the perfect setting for the market which boasts 68 stalls selling gifts, food and drink.

Whether you’re looking for boutique accessories to keep you warm in the winter (Studio Hop, Sian Eymur), fill your loved ones’ stockings with artisan gifts (The Little Tibet, Turkish the Light, London Art Life) or simply settle in to eat, drink and be merry (Jim & Tonic, The Lambassadors, Georgie Porgies Puddings, New England Seafood) Christmas by the Riverwill be the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a true Christmas market.
