One of my favourite London Christmas markets has to be the one at South Bank. It’s just so gorgeous, with those faux German chalet-style stalls. I remember buying snowglobes and Russian dolls there last year, and this year didn’t fail to impress again. I love the smell of the food stalls, and seeing the sparkly decorations for sale.
There was this really cool snowglobe display, with a Christmas tree inside. What I really liked about it was that it was interactive, so visitors could make the ‘snow’ inside move by pedalling on the fixed bicycles around it.
I felt that the strings of Christmas lights were a nice touch, but didn’t obstruct the view of the river too much.
There was an adorable house with steam/smoke coming out of the chimney, which made it seem like a real playhouse house, if you see what I mean.
Look how packed the place was!
This reminded me of Edward Scissorhands, where he sculpts the plants with his scissor hands.
I saw this jolly looking guy on my way to the market, and just had to snap a picture of him 🙂
This was (and still is!) my favourite fairground ride when I was little. I can see why my parents sighed every time I clamoured to go on one though!
