Drink mulled wine at Greenwich Market

Whilst other markets pop up and down regularly at this time of year, Greenwich Market is a stalwart, and generally offers a better choice of gifts than most of the other markets anyway. This time of year the hilariously-named Ye Olde Drink also offers mulled wine at the southern end of the marketplace to warm chilly market-goers.

Though there has been a market around for longer, the Royal Charter for Greenwich Market was issued to the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital on the 19th December 1700, allowing the market to take place for 1,000 years. In the mid-1800s it began to move from the gates of the Hospital to its current location, where it has been held since.
