As promised, I'll tell you a little bit about December and Christmas in London. My first tip is, if you want to enjoy the Christmas feeling without too much people, go as early as possible. Most pop up stores, Winter Wondeland and the markets open in late November already. We were there 1st-4th December but places like Hamley's, Harrods, Oxford Street and Hyde Park were full of people already. Going the days before Christmas probably results in a great Christmassy mood, but you'll have to be prepared to queue to get in to every single shop. It's also good to wake up early - most people start filling up the stores by 1 pm, so if possible, get up early and get things done!
So why go to London before Christmas? The capital of England is an incredibly cozy christmas city which beats most other cities with its decorations and lit up streets. Favourites include Regent St and Carnaby for the best lights, Harrods and Selfridges for some good window displays, and if you want Christmas pop up stores, head to Liberty, Fortum&Mason and of course Harrods. One of my favourite things were all the Christmas market around the river - on the pics you can see the one between London Bridge and Tower Bridge, they served the best cronuts!
Last but not least, I can't go without mentioning Winter Wonderland! A crazy big christmas market/fair/funpark/ice rink har they build in Hyde Park late november every year. There are loads of people but the fair-atmosphere is like one from the movies that you don't want to miss!
I hope some of these tips will help some of you; no one should miss out on at least one London Christmas, but think of how much people you can handle beforehand, haha! Have a nice evening and I'll see you tomorrow - it's mum's birthday and I fixed the best present! Lova and hugs!
