We know better than anyone else that there’s no place like home, especially at Christmas. Nothing beats the warmth and familiarity of a close community, and we’d like to share our love of Norbury, Battersea, Elephant & Castle and Tower Bridge with you. Watch our local area videos and fill your diary with festive events, as recommended by your local Gordon & Co team.
Eat, drink, shop, repeat - it’s the Norbury way of life! The community features fine establishments including Blend Coffee, Ruz Fishmongers, Meat Shop and Daily Fresh Foods. Our video shows what we love about living in Norbury, so take a look.
Norbury Seasonal specials
Kick off the festive season with mulled wine, mince pies and Santa meetings! Two local events deserve your attention, both happening on Sunday 9th December: Santa Comes to Norbury Park held at Norbury Lawn Tennis Club, and the Rookery Christmas Fair and Market in neighbouring Streatham Common. If you want to know more about what is happening in the area this holiday season, don’t hesitate to contact our Norbury estate agents.
Supporting local is easy in Battersea, especially when your High Streets include Northcote Road and Lavender Hill. Stock up on Hamish Johnston’s cheeses, pasties at Warren’s Bakery and fresh flowers from The Flower Stand. For more inspiration, watch our video.
Battersea Seasonal specials
Set aside a whole day to immerse yourself in Battersea Power Station’s festive spirit. There are pop up stalls to browse, Instagram-friendly giant mistletoe to pose under and The Luna Winter Cinema showing Christmas classics, including Home Alone and Elf - all from 30th November. For festive celebrations in Battersea and across the Wandsworth borough, ask our friendly Battersea estate agents.
Amble along the cobbled streets and along the riverfront, nipping in and out of local staples such as The Sandwich Shop, Fuckoffee and Aron Dry Cleaning - probably the most picturesque place to do your day-to-day shopping! If you can’t picture it, watch our video instead.
Tower Bridge seasonal specials
Christmas markets are hard to beat in terms of atmosphere and independent retailers, so make a beeline for London Bridge City’s Christmas by the River market, with almost 70 food, drink and gift stalls filling the space between London Bridge and Tower Bridge from 29th November. Another spot not to miss this festive season is South Bank Winter Festival and Christmas Market, open until the 6th January 2019. On your way to the Christmas market, why not pop in our Tower Bridge office to meet and greet the team?
Elephant & Castle
If you like your locals with a twist, you’ll feel right at home in Elephant & Castle. Try Tupi, for European dishes with a South American slant and Mercato Metropolitano - a community hub where you can eat, drink and celebrate with a clear social conscious. Our video gives you a great flavour!
Elephant & Castle seasonal specials
Children will love the Christmas events at Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre from 2nd December, with a giant snow globe, toboggan slide and free workshops. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, try the Alice in Winterland Lantern and Light Festival in Southwark Park. For more festive cheer, why not drop by our office on Walworth Road?
