Southbank Winter

Time Out says

Every winter the Southbank Centre turns the banks of the Thames into a frosty wonderland, full of little wooden Alpine-style cabins selling gifts, warming drinks, and snacksThis year, you can cosy up at Jimmy’s Winter Lodge with its heated riverside snowglobes where you can snaffle down cheese fondue. Further down you’ll find huts serving up truffle burgers, duck wraps, Thai street food, Lebanese-Mediterranean cuisine and cheese toasties. Or grab a glass of mulled wine while you look through gifts, jewellery and decorations made by independent designers and take in those sparking riverside views. 

When is Southbank Christmas Market open?

It's open Thursday November 2 until Boxing Day, Tuesday December 26, but some pop ups will stay open until the new year. The Southbank Centre's Winter Festival is on for quite a lot longer, from Saturday October 28 until Sunday January 7, 2024. 

Do you need to buy a ticket?

No, it's free to enter and have a wander.
