Hurry to Leadenhall Market for daily flurries of snow.
Leadenhall Market has welcomed traders and wizards for years now, but they’ll also be welcoming snow this winter. Like Covent Garden, the market is being filled with flurries of snow each day, making those last-minute festive shopping trips a little bit more special. [Featured image: @leadenhallmarket]
Despite London’s recent move into Tier 3, the market is still open and the flakes are still falling. You’ll be able to pop along and twirl around in the snow in a suitably cinematic manner from 11am-4pm until December 23, at which point you really ought to be done with your Christmas shopping, right? Aside from the falling snow, Leadenhall Market will have snowflakes projected onto the market’s magnificent ceiling, to put the final touches on their festive display.
Though the market’s pubs, bars, and restaurants are all closed, they’ve got plenty of retail options for you to pick up those final Christmas gifts; try Reiss or Diptyque for clothing, Amathus for festive tipples, Aux Merveilleux De Fred for munchable pastries, and finally Cheese Leadenhall to stock up the essential Christmas Day cheese board. Oh, and on top of all of that, the market boasts one of London’s best-looking Christmas trees, which has been given a dusting of snow since making its first appearance. A winter wonderland indeed!
