What's On In London: December 2017

If there's one time of the year that I love visiting London the most, it's definitely the festive time. There's so much to do and it's also so bloody beautiful. So if you're thinking of heading to the city anytime soon, here are some of the must-see things.

During the festive time, there are tons of places that you can go ice-skating in London, such as at the 
Somerset HouseHampton Court,  the Tower of LondonSkylightthe Natural History MuseumCanary Wharf and at the Christmas markets: Winterville, Wintertime Festival, Winterfest and Winter Wonderland

I think we can all agree that Christmas markets are something that we ALL look forward to attending during this time of year and there are more than enough to fill your cravings in London, such as at the Greenwich Wintertime FestivalWinter Wonderland, Christmas in Leicester SquareWintertime at SouthbankWintervilleChristmas by the River and Winterfest.

If you want to meet Sandy Claws this festive season, you'll find him at his grotto in Leicester Squarein 'Santa Land' at Winter Wonderlandover at ZSL London Zoo (you'll also be able to make festive crafts with Mrs Claus and Santa's elves), at the 'North Pole village' in Kew Gardensat the Royal Albert Hallover at the WWT London Wetland Centre
where you'll also be able to take a sleigh ride with some beautiful huskies. You'll also find him by the river for the Santa Cruise, at the Museum of London Docklands, at Sutton House and at the Ragged School Museum

The Christmas lights in London are spectaular and never dissapoint and quite honestly, they always make the trip to London worthwhile during this time of year. To see the main hot-spots for the lights head to Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, Covent Garden, Seven Dials, Bond Street, Regent Street, Duke of York Square, SouthbankMaryleboneSt James's MarketSt Katharine Docks and Trafalgar Square. Be sure to have a look at the huge department stores that also get a make-over this time of year, they also look incredible! 

If you're still struggling to find something to do this festive season, you could always get tickets to go and see Hogwarts in the Snow, watch the trail of light at Kew, catch some Christmas classics at the Snow Kingdom or you could even head over to Kensington Palace for a Victorian Christmas experience! 

Whatever you end up doing, I hope you have a fantastic time and a wonderful Christmas!
