London is an amazing place all year round,
but at Christmas it is just unbelievably beautiful.
The lights, the displays....
the atmosphere, it really is breathtaking.
It's this crazy busy city for 11 months of the year,
but when December comes along,
you can see all of the busy
Londoners making time to take a step
back from their routine and just
appreciating what the city has to offer.
One of the things I really enjoy doing at Christmas
is buying amazing gifts for
my loved ones.
One thing I love doing is window shopping.
I'll spend an afternoon looking
at all the window displays without
really buying anything, just trying to
gather ideas and inspiration.
London is so great for shopping. The most
famous street is Oxford Street, but I
really like King's Road as well.
The luxury brands really compete with each other.
Some of them are pretty impressive.
Another lovely place to visit in London
at Christmas time is Covent Garden,
the centre of which used to be a fruit and
vegetable market and then in the
nineteen-eighties it changed to
a shopping centre. There are lots of lovely
little shops and you can also see some
street performers if you go at the right time.
I enjoy heading down south of the river
and appreciating the views of the river
Thames from one of London's many bridges.
It really does make me feel very very
very small in such a big city.
One of my favourite lunch spots is one of the
largest and oldest food markets in the
whole of London, Borough Market. In 2014
it celebrated its thousandth birthday.
If you do head over to Borough Market,
don't forget to try some of the hot cider,
perfect to warm you up on a cold day.
So that was a little taste of my beautiful
city at Christmas time and I'd love to
hear your recommendations.
Bye for now!
