Christmas On The Southbank

December 10, 2014

When you get a new camera there is no better place in London to try it out than the Southbank, there is the stunning river views and of course at Christmas, the Christmas Markets. So with my trusty new Nikon D5300 in hand (an early Christmas pressie from Danny) we ventured down to the markets for lunch. I wanted to avoid a lot of crowds so figured a Tuesday afternoon would be a good time to go and that it was. It was not busy at all and although a few stalls may have been missing it was still a fun atmosphere. Each little hut is so unique and sells everything including jewellery, candles, Christmas gifts and of course what we were there for – food!

After a walk through all the huts trying to decide what to choose, we decided on a fried chicken schnitzel bun and a hot-dog. We quickly chomped these down and headed straight to the Churros hut, no visit to the market is complete without Churros, I just love them.

There are lots of fun family parts to do at the Southbank, including a mini train ride and the carousel and I’m not sure what this inflatable bunny was for!?

We stuck around as much as we could in the cold, as I waited for it to get slightly dark so I could get some lovely shots across the river. I am looking forward to learning lots about photography next year and might even take a course so this was my first try out just snapping away. I love all the fairylights surrounding the ice-rink and makes the London Eye look quite spectacular when it is lit up.

After a short walk along the riverside, we headed straight to EAT to warm ourselves up with some hot drinks and yes that is a Christmas jumper you see!
