London: The Perfect Christmas Venue

    The average Brit spends four months of their life complaining about the weather. Admittedly, they do have it rough and even in the summer they don’t often get too much sunshine. Unsurprisingly, winter is no different. In December, however, the rain begins to subside and the snow begins to fall, transforming London into a picturesque winter wonderland. For this reason, December is the perfect time to visit London and there’s no better time to visit than Christmas. The run up to that special day is amazing and the city really comes alive.

    Here’s why you should make sure that you visit London over Christmas:

    The Perfect Shopping Hub:

    London has a shop for everything. From Hamleys to Harvey Nicholls, there’s a shop for every single present on your wish list. Due to the fact that all of the shops are in close proximity, you can get everything in a single day, meaning that you have more time to relax.

    As well as this, the close proximity nature of the shopping creates a great buzz around London as the city is transformed into a shopping centre in the winter sales- you’ll have to be quick to grab those bargains though.

    A Picturesque Winter Wonderland:

    London is a city that comes alive at Christmas. London’s Christmas lights are among the best in the world and they transform the city from a concrete jungle to a picturesque winter wonderland. They’re usually themed to coincide with cinematic releases so you’re almost guaranteed to see something truly unique.

    In addition, the great London tourist sites also come alive, with the river Thames looking simply majestic as thousands of tourists opt for a winter cruise.

    A Truly Romantic Destination:

    With carol singers, buskers and artists alike converging on London at Christmas, it becomes incredibly romantic. Paris may be known as ‘the city of love’, but London closely rivals this at Christmas.

    A romantic getaway in London is a must at Christmas time and you must stay overnight to truly enjoy all aspect of London life. If you’re after extra glamour and romance then you should opt for a serviced apartment rather than a hotel. Companies such as Urban Retreat offer this service, providing you with a luxurious and private ‘home away from home’ right in the heart of London.

    There you have it, three reasons why London is the ultimate Christmas location. Make sure that you book your trip today.
