It's almost Christmas, which means that the annual Finnish Christmas Fair will be coming to London very soon. Held at the Finnish Church which is based in Rotherhithe, London, it will be an ideal place to go for some Nordic and Scandinavian festive cheer.

Each year, the church hosts a charming selection of food and craft stalls where visitors can purchase Christmas gifts and various Finnish food products for the festive period. There is also a cafe selling Finnish pastries and an outdoor food court with traditional Finnish food for those interested in sampling some of the local cuisine.

There are so many Christmas markets going on and this one sounds like it will be a bit different with the Finnish element - definitely worth a visit
