London is one of the greatest cities in the world
, full of life and energy, and as the movie “Love Actually” taught me, holiday spirit and romance. There’s no telling who you might see on the cobblestone steps. Perhaps the guy at the coffeeshop on his MacBook is trying to be Charles Dickens, maybe that band playing at the pub are the next Rolling Stones, and it’s entirely possible that that cute Japanese girl who’s come here to learn English in London is the love of your life. So it’s clearly time to plan your trip. Here’s the best things to see and do this Winter in London:
1: Take a stroll through Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, which will be shining with 100,000 lights, rides and the largest ice skating rink in the UK.
2: See a classic slapstick or vaudeville play during London’s Panto season at the Vaudeville Theatre’s Potted Panto.
3: Pet some reindeer at the London Zoo.
4: Check out the annual performance of the Nutcracker at the English National Ballet.
5: Take in a reading of Dickens’ A Christmans Carol at the British Library.
So there you have it. Of course, there’s literally thousands more choices in this cultural and historical city, but those should be enough to get you started. So start planning your trip and get there this Winter. That cute Japanese girl is waiting for you.
