Of all the iconic and hustle-bustling beauty of England, London is an enchanting landmark at all times of the year, but there’s something really special about London in the winter.
The streets were sparkling with lights, the windows of the shops were decorated with sparkles, and everyone wrapped themselves in big wool scarves, wandering down the streets even festive – thanks to the smell of alcohol.
Warming radiated from the pubs on the street corners. If you’re in London at Christmas (before / after a few weeks), it’s time to pack up and let this article be your guide for this winter tour.
1. ENJOY THE SPIRIT OF DEPARTMENT IN HYDE PARK
Every winter, the southeast corner of Hyde Park transforms into a true celebration of every kind of festival. Put on your sweater and get ready for the dim lights, live bands and speakers that play classic Christmas songs. Also, the beer village that serves warm wine around the bonfires. What’s more, there are play areas that you can try to get rid of all in one day.
2. SLIDING TAPE AT SOMERSET HOUSE
Somerset House is a typical British style house. It is tall, wide, and if it’s not exactly in the heart of London, head straight to Downton Abbey.
The pillars of the Somerest House perfectly adorn the grand courtyard from the 18th century. It is now an outdoor ice rink for winter – perfect with the glittering lights and afternoon tea of Fortnum. & Mason. Winter in London couldn’t be more English than that.
3. SLIDING A MORE BAND IN THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
If a perfect Instagram festive image is on your Christmas list this year, the skating rink at the Natural History Museum (obviously, skating is never enough for Londoners!) Is a place You must visit.
Smaller and more intimate than Somerset House, the skating rink is delineated by spindly trees surrounded by fairy gold lights, complete with an ornate architectural backdrop and a pine tree. Very big Noel – hello, a modern day fairy tale.
