Now that lockdown 2.0’s been lifted and we’re all freed from the confined our home, there’s only one place to be.

No, not the pub. And certainly not your friend’s house. No, the place to be in London this winter is, of course, the humble Christmas market.

Make no mistake about it: Christmas is not cancelled, and the capital’s plethora of food-filled stalls and small businesses are here to prove it.

But could it be that we’ve found the best Christmas market of them all?

Located in Eccleston Yards, a Belgravia square in the middle of Belgravia, the market runs from 11am to 5pm every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in December and is your one-stop-shop for all things Christmas.

Firstly, there’s live music. And not just any live music, but performances from up-and-coming artists who have been unable to platform their talents for the duration of this year. And let’s be real, who doesn’t want to mooch with a mulled wine while humming along to Mariah? We certainly do.

Then there’s the food - the uncontested star of every Christmas market the world over. Eccleston Yards has attracted the likes of Wild by Tart - the West London eatery famed for its seasonal and fresh approach to food, Jones Family Kitchen (revered for its stellar steaks), and Morena, the Latin American jewel in its crown.

Eccleston Yards is London’s best kept Christmas secret and now, it’s yours too.

The Eccleston Yards Christmas market kicks off December 4, every day from 11am to 5pm. Find out more about it here.
