A Very English Christmas (7 Days)

London acquires a special sparkle around Christmas time. Over the holiday season, it’s quite an event, with streets elaborately decorated, cards twice the size of your head, paper crowns, crackers (presents pop out), a roast fit for a king, pantomimes and annual Christmas specials of popular shows. The weather is frosty, the Christmas lights are twinkling, and shoppers line the streets. Hyde Park comes alive with its Winter Wonderland, and vendors continue the centuries-old tradition of selling their hand-crafted wares and tasty treats at a variety of Christmas markets. Visit the London that Dickens knew in all of its whimsical holiday glory!
