London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015 No.4. @PullensYards #xmasinlondon #londonxmas

Welcome to our London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015. 

Over the next few weeks we'll be pointing you in the direction of our favourite shops and shopping neighbourhoods near the meeting and ending points of our London Walks …

LW guide Isobel suggests a trip to the Borough of Southwark

No.4. Pullens Yards

I recommend Open Studios at Pullen's Yards this weekend – Saturday 5th 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.
