Decision taken, tickets booked…and only few days left till you reach the festive city of London!
London at Christmas can certainly be fun, touristic yet eclectic, trendy yet royal and fancy. A perfect combination of various Christmas holiday experiences making everybody jolly!
Our Top London Christmas things to do :
Winterville, East London is back for 2017 Xmas and you can’t miss it! Lots of dancing, eating, drinking and of course having the most wonderful time!If you are on family holiday in London, don’t miss the quarter dedicated to kids where Santa will be waiting for them!
Christmas at Kew.. A fairy tale for both kids and adults! Follow the one mile sparkling path through the famous botanical gardens boasting over 1.000.000 twinkling lights.Walk through glittering trees, snowflakes and stars , hear the chorus of Singing Trees before arriving at a wonderful glistening lake, where you’ll witness an underwater display of lights .Enjoy a mulled wine or hot chocolate while the young ones will certainly have fun at the White Peaks where awaiting a Victorian carousel.
Ice Skating Lates at the Somerset House
The unique ice rink set in the grand 18th-century courtyard presents for 2017 ,Skate Lates, a specially curated program of music nights.. The West Wing will once again transform into Fortnum’s Christmas Arcade. While for 2018 you can skate and listening to live music from the incredible LaSharVu.
Yet, it won’t feel like London Christmas if you don’t spend time on shopping in the Harrods and the Fortnum & Mason. Walk down Oxford Street, welcoming this year 1,778 decorations (and 750,000 LED light bulbs) inspired by falling snowflakes. While fancy Bond Street is decorated by Giant illuminated peacock feather lining the shopping destination.
Therofore, it would be a great idea to choose an accommodation, centrally located or at the proximities of the tube. We like the Studio Abbey Road London ,theis new cozy and elegant studio providing all facilities and only 10 minute away from Oxford Street and other main attractions.
Last but not least , you can’t miss an afternoon tea at Claridges hotel and a ticket for the Nut Cracker Ballet. While as per your appetite and all day gourmet experiences we recommend you the Coppa Club Igloos, open from early morning till late night , with a privileged seating to enjoy the river view from every side indoor and outoor and the Lodge d’Argent located in the heart of the city, themed on a traditional French ski chalet with bites and booze. Try the cappuccino ice-cream with Hennessy, or the top excquisite vanilla crème brûlée with Hennessy!
It’s the Holidays after all and you should certainly enjoy the outmost of this glittery season!
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and may all your wishes come true...
