Have a magical Christmas in Greenwich this year, with fabulous festive lights, a market boasting top gift ideas, and Santa making a special appearance to the delight of kids and grown-ups.
Join in the festive spirit with the school children’s Greenwich Lantern Procession on 23 November (4-7pm). Follow the parade, led by a jazz band, from Discover Greenwich ORNC through Cutty Sark Gardens and into Greenwich Market. Here, watch the switch-on of the twinkling Christmas lights by Cbeebies’ Sarah Jane Honeywell and savour indulgent mince pies and treat yourself to a warm drink.
After the Lantern Procession, kids will have the opportunity to meet Santa in his cosy Greenwich Grotto. Don’t worry if you can’t make it that day: Santa and his elves are back from 17 to 23 December between noon and 5pm, with gift bags full of unique treats (£4 per gift).
Find beautiful Christmas gifts as historic Greenwich Market lights up for Christmas. The market is open every day in the run-up to Christmas, from 1 December until 24 December. Set within a world heritage site, the covered market showcases more than 100 stalls selling crafts, jewellery, fashion, beauty, antiques, art and more, as well as festive street food and drinks to get you in the Christmas spirit.
