#London Christmas Shopping No.39: The Royal Festival Hall @southbankcentre

Daily Constitutional editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…

It's 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.

A few last minutes bits!

The Royal Festival Hall

All lovers of music head to the Royal Festival Hall. Opened with Elgar in 1951, home to the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960 (!) it has hosted heavy metal from Motorhead, Sondheim musicals, Ella Fitzgerald and many, many more.

The Royal Festival Hall gift shop currently stocks a lovely line in record-themed homeware for the music lover in your life (see pic)
