Winter Village

Best market for...
Unique crafts and treats

Nearest tube
Hackney Central

Even those who find Christmas shopping more fun than opening their own presents will have one person on their list they find a challenge, so markets full of contemporary crafts, locally made art and unique edible treats like this one are a gift in themselves. If we didn't know that it was organised by the people behind Soho Flea Market and last year's Dalston Christmas Market we might think Santa himself had planned it.

  1. St John-at-Hackney Church Lower Clapton Rd, E5 0PD
  2. Fri Dec 5 - Sun Dec 7

Hyper Japan Christmas Market

Hi there is an error in the first of your listings. The nearest Tube Station to Kew Gardens is Kew Gardens and not Richmond as stated.

There is so much to choose from the above list that I think I will start with the food at the Real Food Christmas market.

This guide is brilliant, enables us to make the most of our time in London, planning our day in advance and pick the markets that have products that interest us. Tube details are also very helpful..... Can't wait to visit.
