London Bridge City has announced the launch of Winter by the River, which will be located just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Tower Bridge. The enchanting winter festival, which is now in its seventh year, will be running throughout the 2023 festive season, from November 19th to January 1st.
Winter by the River is where the heart of London will come alive with dazzling lights, bustling market stalls, themed karaoke rooms, and pop-up bars. It will be a delightful experience for visitors, who will get the opportunity to explore an array of market stalls, stroll through the neon-themed illuminating lights, and enjoy a one-of-a-kind shopping experience.
Visitors to Winter by the River will be inspired by unique gifts like handmade candles and skincare from charming winter cabin stalls, and for those who might feel peckish, there will be tantalising treats on offer, such as Korean corn dogs, hearty burgers and Empanadas from street food outlets.
Nestled against the breathtaking City skyline, Winter by the River has been a beloved addition to London’s festive scene for the past six years, making the market an essential destination for all who seek to feel the rush of the season.
Something that shouldn’t be missed will be ‘Karaoke at the Pier,’ where brilliant music, delicious cocktails, and Prosecco by the bottle await you at London’s new pop-up karaoke bar at London Bridge City Pier. Be the smash hit at the office by booking the memorable Christmas party venue, or simply perform a rendition of Auld Lang Syne with friends and drinks.
Either way, Karaoke by the Pier is the place to be this winter. Its indoor karaoke rooms can accommodate up to ten people, and there is a catalogue of more than 80,000 songs, from current hits to old-school classics, to choose from.
No holiday celebration is complete without festive beverages, and Winter by the River goes above and beyond by offering not one but two pop-up bars. With the option of an outdoor or heated indoor bar that doesn’t compromise the view, a variety of festive and classic drinks will be on offer to raise a toast to the season against London’s picture-perfect landmarks.
As part of its commitment to community, Winter by the River has social enterprise stalls and supports local partner St Giles.
Winter by the River will be a place where you can immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere, shop for unique holiday gifts, eat, drink, and give the gift of giving back while taking in the panoramic views of Tower Bridge. It will be an ideal way to embrace the festive spirit and will offer something special for everyone.
