Sharing is caring dear traveller; each week, a member of our knowledgeable team of locals shares their insider knowledge on what’s hot and happening in and around our nests.
With London having it’s first (and perhaps only) snow of the year last weekend, Christmas festivities are in full swing. We know that both our travellers and locals alike are fleeing the capital this festive season to be with their families, but there’s plenty of travelers joining us for the holidays and we can guarantee the city has them in for a treat! To celebrate, we’ve curated a series of markets to kickstart the celebration. Whether thirsty for some mulled wine, looking for last minute gift ideas or simply wanting to get in the spirit with other Christmas enthusiasts – we’ve got you covered. And, as our apartments are appropriately situated in the city’s hotspots, all of these markets are a mere stone’s throw away!
Christmas Canopy Market King’s Cross
We don’t need to tell you how much we love King’s Cross lately. It’s a never-ending source of creativity and opportunity, with the development in the area attracting the best talent out there. It therefore comes as no surprise that their market tops the list. From art, handmade goods to London’s beloved food pop-up eateries, West Handyside Canopy will have it all this weekend. If you stop by, we recommend the AT THE TABLE Market Workshops, the epitome of everything we want from our markets – workshops, tastings, cooking demos and much, much more.
Canopy Market runs from 14th December to 17th December. For more information, go to https://www.kingscross.co.uk/canopy-market
Hackney Flea-Mas Market
The Hackney Flea Market is a bit of a cultural institution for locals, which means that the Holiday edition is not one to be missed. Local marketeers gather round to provide your Christmas gifts and decorations, all crafted by East London talent. Vintage clothes, furniture, records and more will grace the list of opportunities. With salvaged and one-of-a-kind items on the list, you’ll be in for a surprise.
Flea-Mas Market runs from 16th December to 17th December. More information at https://www.facebook.com/events/2124089457818204/
Vegan Christmas Night Market
Christmas is not famously a good time for vegetarians, let alone vegans. Get creative with some vegan dishes and dive into mulled wine season at this one-night only pop-up. And plus, they promise some exciting live entertainment.
The Vegan Market runs on 15th Dec from 5pm until 10:30pm at the The London Irish Centre Charity, 50-52 Camden Square, London NW1 9XB.
