Where to spend Christmas in London

The other day when comparing London vs Sydney, I was wondering how many times I’ve visited London already. I do admit that the London weather not always behaves nice but it only makes me go to London over and over again as the city has some charm to it no matter what. Thinking of getting the best accommodation deal might be a good idea before going to England capital.

The last time I went to London and finally saw something was last year in November for World Travel Market where I won the Fun Travel Blog award. I remember clearly that already some 5 weeks before Christmas, London was all covered with Christmas lights and you could cut the Santa atmosphere. We did not have much snow when I was there, it just hailed when I walked to the Buckingham Palace.

For a Christmassy Weekend in London I would say spend a day at the park because if it snows it’s extra beautiful.

Although quit drinking alcohol back in January 2009 I still have random nights out in bars. But if you drink, then enjoy a warm cider or mulled wine as it definitely belongs to proper Christmas in London.

I also recommend you to visit the markets - Shoreditch Boxpark which is a popup mall in the east end, for example, and it’s near Brick Lane, which is home to loads of food and clothes markets.
There’s also Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, a big annual Christmas fair with lots of food and amusements where you can spend hours pampering yourself. Trust me, behaving like a kid from time to time is worth it and you should do it with no regrets.

If you are a sports lover, you could also go ice skating at one of London’s many beautiful outdoor rinks, for example the one at Tower Hill, or Somerset House. You will definitely burn the calories gained at all the Christmas markets.

Wanna have some fun? Then check out Santacon. It is an annual event in December when thousands of people dress up as Santa and spread xmas cheer around the city.

As for shopping (everyone needs to buy Christmas presents or just please yourself because you simply deserve it), the best stores to visit during Christmas in London are Liberty, Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges (for the shop windows), and the Covent Garden area.

Oh, and do not forget to check out the Christmas lights on Regent Street.

I gotta say Christmas in London is beautiful indeed!
