#London Christmas Shopping No.3: Pullens Yards #SE17 @GuidedbyIsobel @PullensYards

Daily Constitutional editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…


It's back! The annual London Christmas Shopping Guide from The Daily Constitutional!



This year I'll be including museum gift shops and markets for gift ideas. 


As well as gifts I'll be pointing you toward local London shops for the best in Christmas food and drink. Where relevant, I'll list the London Walks tour that finishes near the shop in question.



As usual, you can drop me a line with your own tips by emailing the usual address, by leaving a comment below or via Twitter.



Pullens Yards

Isobel writes…

I recommend Open Studios at Pullens Yards this weekend – Saturday 3rd December.

The artists studios are great; wonderful jewellery, fab ceramics, home made chutneys to die for (the chilli is beyond divine), paintings, photography, lutes even! Terence Conran has raved about it, Keith Richards has had an instrument made there. For enjoyable Christmas shopping, it can't be beat!



My walk – Walworth Old &New – starts outside Kennington tube at 10.45 on Saturday morning, and finishes by the artist studios. There are good eats to be had locally, so you shop til you drop on a full tum.

Christmas 2016 With London Walks…


On Christmas Day there are TWO London Walks: 

Walk up an appetite with The Christmas Morning 1660 Walk – meet at 11:00a.m by the big tree in Trafalgar Square



Walk off the pudding with The Christmas Day Charles Dickens Walk – meet by the big tree in Trafalgar Square at 2:00pm





A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
