Nothing gets us in the Christmas spirit more than a festive and fun-filled Christmas market. Our favourite ones pop up every year and we love to get them in the diary as soon as possible to make sure we don’t miss out! Whether it’s mulled wine, bratwurst or sweet treats you’re after there’s something for everyone at these markets. On the other hand, if having a good old sing-a-long in a bierkeller is more your scene you can enjoy it under the roof of a pop-up beer hall with dancing all round. Since most Christmas markets start in November and run all the way through to January we’ve got it sorted with a list of our fave festive winners and when they’re happening, so grab your pen and pop the dates in your diary!

There are so many Christmas markets across London that if you don’t want to travel far there’s sure to be one on your doorstep. However, the biggest fun-filled event by far is in London’s Hyde Park where Winter Wonderland takes place. Packed with funfair rides, an ice rink and its very own German beer tent, not to mention tonnes of entertainment and almost every sausage imaginable, you couldn’t ask for more from this market. From the top of the Ferris wheel you’ll be treated to a magical, Christmassy scene with masses of people in bobble hats and fluffy coats, so make sure you wrap up warm!
