Londoners are embracing the Danish concept of ‘hygge‘ this winter (pronounced ‘hoo-gah’,) which is all about getting cosy and enjoying a warm glow from simple things. If that’s your thing, then this is the perfect spot to get out and enjoy a little pre-festive season wandering. The Scandinavian Christmas Market has stalls filled with edible (and thirst-quenching) Scandi treats from likes of Fine and Scandi, and Finn deli.
Christmas shopping on a budget? Save some coinage (and delivery miles) by supporting independent retailers. Pick up hand made textiles and homeware from Nordic Nic Nac, calendars and greeting cards from Sven Comics and an assortment of vintage clothes, homeware and books from the Up Market Community Charity Shop.
