London at Christmas – Days and Nights

In addition to the sights and sounds of the holidays, the Christmas-related activities are on overdrive in London. From the markets filled with roasted chestnuts and mulled wine to ice skating at Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, there’s no shortage of activities to make your holiday dreams come true.

If you’re lucky enough to make it out of the skating rink alive (no easy feat, we assure you), settle your weary nerves in the aptly named Bar Ice, where the drinks are the only things not made of ice.

There’s an argument to be made that we all should be pausing in the afternoon for a spot of tea and cucumber sandwich. While this concept hasn’t quite caught on in the U.S., a luxurious afternoon tea is a must in London.

We celebrated this quintessential British tradition, at The Ritz London, where the sweets are abundant, the champagne is pink, and the tea list contains special selections that taste like Christmas in a cuppa.

Nights are spent sipping champagne,

Before taking a spin on the London Eye.

Or cuddled up in a pub sipping cider.

Of course, if none of those things fit your fancy, you’re likely to find the fanciest apres ski themed party somewhere in the city.

Where you’ll have a chance to show off your holiday best, including your most festive grin. Talk about a holly jolly time!
