My Festive Journey Around London

Oh how I do love Christmas. What I even love more than Christmas is a London Christmas. London is a city that truly comes alive at Christmas.  There are so many amazing things to see and do in our beautiful city but I thought I would share with you some of my personal favourites.

 

SHOPPING

Festive shopping is the best! I do love to shop but generally over the festive I do less clothes shopping (mainly as I save that until the sales) and lots of food and gift shopping.  One of my personal favourite places to shop is Fortnum and Masons.  I confess I have already bought a whole stash of some of my favourite F&M biscuits already! The Baileys will be on ice and I will be tucked up on the sofa munching away on shortbread chocolate chip cookies.

 

DRINKS IN THE SKY

Drinks in the sky should be for any occasion but for some reason the night time air seems so magically over Christmas. My all time favourite place to have a tipple or to is Aqua Shard.  Mummy RW also loves Hutong so it’s a perfect excuse to say let’s have dinner and drinks.

DRINKS IN A LUXURY HOTEL BAR OR AFTERNOON TEA IF YOU STILL FANCY IT

 

Okay when I was younger, before I could start drinking I always used to go to Claridges for afternoon tea over Christmas. Now I am a antique I don’t want the sandwiches but I do want the Champagne.  Nothing in this world beats drinks in a 5 star London hotel.  The Foyer at Claridges is one of my favs but there are so many too chose from.

SKATE

What is a Christmas without skating at Somerset House.  I am not really a skater but every year I hope along to Somerset House, watch other people skate and have a drink in one of the bars. No Christmas is complete without a Somerset House

TOURIST

I absolutely love nothing more than playing tourist over Christmas. Going to an Art Gallery, seeing a play that has been on my list forever or simply enjoying the crisp winter air.  Last winter I was in full tourist mode and went up the London Eye on the most beautiful winter’s day, blue sky, crisp air.

I am the guest host of this month’s travel link up along with regular hosts, Emma, Angie and Polly.


What are you festive plans this year? Zoe x

    I adore skate – I walk past twice a day on the way to and from work and nearly always stick my head it to watch, morning or night! It is just so pretty!
