Christmas in London

Christmas in London is a huge deal. The Christmas decorations go on sale in stores as early as July! Yes, July and I have photos to prove it. Since the holidays are coming up shortly, I will be posting what Christmas looks like in London. If you have never been to London during Christmas, then you definitely should.

  1. I’m lucky enough to live in London, and Christmas time is my absolute favourite period in the beautiful city. If only it snowed, that would be the icing on the cake!!

    • I agree with you on that one. London would be beautiful with snow during Christmas, especially with schools & offices being closed as well. It’s a perfect time to be at home with loved ones, sitting in front of a cozy fire & watching the snow fall from inside. Have you guys ever gotten snow during Christmas before?

  2. I used to love the 2 main city centre cross streets, I,e Oxford Street (the great shopping thoroughfare providing you can stand the crowds) and Regent Street (where I am sure there were more luxury shops, e.g. Liberty). I think where the come together there is Oxford Circus tube station, which must be one of the busiest on the network. I actually prefer the more open “natural” areas of the city such as walking along the embankments, St Katherine’s Dock near the Barbican, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge and the always beautiful St James’s Park. Enjoy my capital!! (I’m originally from Derby and my point of entry into London was the beautiful St Pancras station. My route: Loughborough, Leicester, Northampton, Bedford, Luton, St Albans, LONDON. Boy do I know that great line.

    • I’ve spent 2 Christmases in London, 2012 & 2013, this Christmas I will be at home in Cyprus. I worked in Marylebone last Holiday Season & it was nuts! Oxford Street & Bond Street station were SUPER busy. Oxford Street was very crowded. The 2012 Christmas, I worked at the largest mall in Europe & that was pretty hectic too. Luckily, my store was outside the Westfield mall in Stratford. I prefer the less crowded areas too. Some of my favorites are: Greenwich, Southbank, Shoreditch, Hyde Park, and of course Tower Bridge & surrounding areas. Walking from Tower Bridge to Southbank is quiet enjoyable. I also loved Notting Hill for their market. My point of entry was from Paphos, Cyprus to London Stansted then bus to Liverpool Street station 🙂
