Alternative Christmas markets and festive events to enjoy this December

There's not much that gets us in the festive spirit like a Christmas market.

The sweet smell of pine trees, cheering renditions of carols and spicy taste of mulled wine combine to make these chilly evenings one of our favourite parts of the build up to December 25th.

And this year, there's a selection of new, alternative markets popping up with a variety of creative stalls and inventive shopping opportunities on offer. Take a look at our pick of London's 10 best Christmas markets and festive events for 2014.
