Christmas in London: 5 must sees
It’s almost Christmas! Since I went to London two weeks ago, I can tell you all about the must sees in London during Christmas. In this blogpost I will tell you about five must sees.
1 Winter Wonderland
The Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is one of the famous Christmas events in London. It is such a big park with lots of things to do. You can call it more a funfair with some Christmas stalls, but it has a cosy atmosphere. You can enjoy some hot chocolate, glühwein, crêpes or waffles. Furthermore, you can go into several attractions, ice skating or go into an ice bar. The park is suitable for children, youth and adults. In general it is very nice to pay a visit to Winter Wonderland. There was only one disadvantage in my opinion: the costs. You can enter the park for free, but all the attractions costs a lot. So take that into account. The park is still open until the third of January 2016 and is daily open from 10 a.m. till 10 p.m.

It is not a sight where you will spend a lot of time, but around Christmas it is definitely worth a visit. Since the famous warehouse features beautiful Christmas decoration around this time of the year, it is for sure amazing to take a look in Harrods. The outside of the warehouse is also beautifully decorated. When I was there, I just went inside for a couple of minutes.
3 Covent Garden
This district of London, close to Oxford Street and China Town, is nice to visit for her coffee houses and around Christmas definitely for her Christmas decorations around the streets. It gives a cosy and warm atmosphere and it is nice to walk through all the streets of this district.

4 London Eye
Not only is the London Eye a beautiful attraction from a distance (and especially by night when it is lightened), but around Christmas (and actually all year around) you should go inside the London Eye. You will have a great view over the city and during night you will see all the beautiful Christmas lights all over the city. It gives a breathtaking image.

5 Oxford Street
Oxford Street is one of the most popular streets of London: most of the international stores are located in this street and that is why Oxford Street is very popular by the tourists. It can be a very busy street, but with all the Christmas decorations in the street and in- and outside the stores, it gives a real Christmas atmosphere. Definitely worth the visit and do not forget to get your Christmas gifts in one of the many stores.
What are you going to do with Christmas? I will enjoy some drinks and dinner with my family, my boyfriend and his family. Christmas is one of my favourites times of the year, so I am really excited!
Everyone, have a very merry Christmas! 🙂
