Well- I’m sure you’re all aware that Christmas is fast approaching! It’s time to get in the mood for Christmas. For a unique experience that is also culturally enlightening, you should head into the heart of London, The South Bank.
Every year at The South Bank, ‘The Frost Fair’ takes place from the 12th December to the 21st of December. This is a German style Christmas market, for those who have had the luck of experiencing Christmas in Germany, I’m sure you already know of the fun to be had at these markets! The 40 wooden ‘chalets’ are all decorated with twinkling lights to create an ambience so cosy by the side of the Thames, even if the British weather is not at its ‘warmest’. The ‘chalets’ have people selling a wide variety of things: from the typical confectionery commodities to be had, such as: fudge and cakes, to more European offers such as crêpes and to wonderful hand-made arts and crafts items to adorn your home with.
‘The Frost Fair’ is most definitely a place for everyone to visit and experience once in their life, it truly shows how London appreciates the diverse culture all year round! It’s a good place to take your family, friends and loved ones; as the city view itself in this festivity is truly magical on it’s own!
Have fun and enjoy!
