Vauxhall is already well known for its thriving nightlife, but this winter residents living in SW8 can once again enjoy the après-ski atmosphere of the Vauxhall Winter Village. Open for a second year after 2016’s successful venture, this exciting event is now open for business in the run up to Christmas.
What is the Vauxhall Winter Village?
The team behind the incredibly popular Vauxhall Street Food Garden launched the first Vauxhall Winter Village event last November on their South Lambeth Place site. Introducing the revolutionary concept of a ski resort close to the heart of London, the Vauxhall Winter Village offered the experience of an Alpine holiday without the hassle of having to leave the city.
Building on last year’s success, this year’s event promises to be equally popular, and is sure to attract visitors from far and wide thanks to its vibrant atmosphere and the chance to try some of the most delicious food and drink south of the Thames.
Fiona Davidson, a Henry Wiltshire estate agent in Nine Elms, is excited about the festive event. “There’s a lot going on at the moment in SW8 with spectacular new developments like Aykon One being created,” she says “and Vauxhall is already well known for its exciting lifestyle. The Vauxhall Winter Village is a great way to bring this strong community together during the holiday season and to bring visitors from all over London to see what this area has to offer.”
Food and drink from around the world
The Vauxhall Winter Village promises a true apres ski experience, with cosy cabins to hire, a winter sports bar serving up exotic cocktails, and even a cable car photo booth where guests can dress in retro ski-wear and take a few selfies.
Of course, no pseudo-Alpine holiday would be complete without some delicious food, and guests will be spoiled for choice here, with winter food stalls serving up seasonal offerings from around the world. Whether diners are in the mood for Mexican treats, Caribbean cuisine or something a little more traditional, there is plenty to choose from on the extensive street food menu.
Apres Ski just steps from Vauxhall Station
The Vauxhall Winter Village is located just 30 seconds from Vauxhall Station and is open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, from 11.30am until 10pm. Fully lit and well protected from the weather, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of the day and to soak in the festive seasonal atmosphere, and entrance is free of charge.
