5 Things To Do This Weekend #25 (London Christmas Edition)

1. Visit an Christmas market
I love a good Christmas market for both the nic nacs and the food, although Winter Wonderland is a bit more touristy than I’d like it’s still a great option. Alternatively the South Bank is probably my favourite as it just so beautiful has fabulous stalls and food but isn’t as much of a fairground. 

2. Go to the Ballet
I was fortunate enough to watch The Nutcracker this week and loved it, I now want to be a ballerina! I would highly recommend going to the ballet, theatre or even to see a pantomime with the kids this year. 

3. Christmas lights
London is famous for it’s Christmas lights- check out Oxford Street, Carnaby Street and Regent Street. If you have time it’s worth going to Covent Garden and to see the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree too. 

4. Christmas departments
Liberties, Harrods and Selfridges Christmas department are a must this time of year and their window displays are stunning too! 

5. Go Ice Skating
I am not the best ice skater however it always so festive on the rinks. Wrap up warm and head down to Somerset House (my fave!), Winter Wonderland or the Natural History Museum.
