Winter Market

Part of Winter

Eat, drink and be merry beside the River Thames at our Winter Market. Expect seasonal goodies, sparkling lights, mulled wine and that festive feeling.

Over six weeks we have two new food and drink pop-ups.

Bar Under the Bridge is a warm hideaway serving cheese-themed food – charcuterie and cheese boards, croque monsieur and baked camembert. It's all served up with classic cocktails including Mojito, Negroni and Espresso Martini.

The Circus Bar is pitching up in front of Royal Festival Hall. Warm up with friends and family in this cosy space with sizzling fire-pits. They’re serving delicious snacks, baguettes filled with hot-smoked salmon and juicy steak, washed down with spicy mulled cider and wine.

Alongside the pop-ups, traders from around the world bring to the riverside an array of handmade festive goodies and delicious street food. Each trader brings their unique spin to the feast, with stalls offering Asian, Indian and Greek cuisines, traditional winter favourites like raclette and bratwurst, and sweet treats including waffles and pancakes.

We’re also welcoming back alpine festive haven Jimmy’s Lodge next to Waterloo Bridge – come down and string out an evening over fondue while gazing out over sparkling lights. You can host your Christmas party at one of our private igloos overlooking the River Thames.

Our regular food market is also open Friday – Sunday in Southbank Centre Square, Belvedere Road.
