Visiting London around Christmas time might be a wonderful idea. In the winter season, London offers many cultural activities, but the city is home to so many attractions that there is no way a winter vacation here would not be a great time. So, what about spending Christmas in London?
Natural History Museum Ice Rink
One of the main attractions in London in the winter, the Natural History Museum Ice Rink is a 1,000 meter square outdoor ice rink. In the center of the ice rink you can admire a beautiful Christmas Tree. If you plan to travel to London with children, this attraction is a must see, as there is also a small rink for kids.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
Hyde Park is filled with attractions in the most beautiful time of the year. The biggest outdoor ice rink in the country, a Giant Observation Wheel and many snow and ice sculptures can be admired. Naturally, everything is covered with beautiful Christmas lights for the festive ambiance. Here you may also find Santa Land, a perfect place for children, and the Christmas Market.
New Year’s Eve Firework Display
If your winter vacation in the capital city of England will last more than a few days, you may remain in the city for the New Year’s celebrations. The firework display over the London Eye and the River Thames is quite spectacular. The best viewing spots are along the Thames, but if you plan on catching the fireworks show, you should leave your hotel in time. The place is going to be filled with crowds.
Christmas in London is a lovely time. Do not miss the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree and if you are in the mood to cheer up at the Santa Run, you can attend the famous Chris Krinkle run marathon. If you want to visit the Alexandra Palace ice rink to get some exercise, if you plan to catch a movie in one of the many cinemas in London or you just want to enjoy a delicious hot chocolate in a cozy pub, London is a magical place to be around Christmas.
