Join us in walking from SE16 to SE1, making use of the Friday Lates Christmas Market at the famous Maltby Street Market (a much smaller offshoot of Borough Market) and the (always open late) Vinegar Yard on a temporary site just outside London Bridge Station.

n=10 attendees, incl. 1 first-timer. Plenty of time was spent on a crowded Maltby Street Market, where some purchased street food, others a mulled wine or just wine. A bit later all but 1 sat down in a nearby Portuguese wine bar/deli in an arch around the corner on Druid Street for more nourishment (as there wasn't enough space in any of the establishments on the market). I then had to leave, but assume that the rest eventually moved on via Tanner and Bermondsey Streets to Vinegar Yard and London Bridge Station...

A late starter joined us at the Portuguese wine bar and 5 of us then went to a nearby micro brewery in one of the arches where we comprehensively tasted their various products...eventually, we set off for the Vinegar Yard only to find it had already closed! So, we settled for a night cap in a nearby pub before heading home around midnight. A fun relaxed night out! Stargazer
