A Bevy of Bazaars
The winter holidays may seem distant now, but trust me, they are just around the corner. And plenty of Londoners seem to know it, as November is filled with bazaars of all kinds! Bazaars are a great way to support local artisans, visit with friends in a fun, festive way, and most importantly, get all those gifts before the rush sets in! Visit one of the many Bazaars happening across the city this month.
