Stock up for Christmas


Head for Duke of York Square for some festive shopping and a chance to stock up on Italian Christmas goodies. The new shopping street, just off King’s Road near Sloane Square, will be hosting its first ever Christmas Fair on Wednesday 10 December, with much of the festivities centering around the Manicomio restaurant and deli. Try Italian sausages from an outdoor barbecue or head inside for a fantastic range of seasonal specialities, including panettone, panforte and fig rolls. Elsewhere in the square, other retail outlets will also be offering special offers and entertainment. Beautifully decorated with lights and vast Christmas trees, the square will be a destination throughout the festive season, with a daily Santa’s Grotto from 28 November and an outdoor ice rink (with skate hire) from 12 December.
