Everyone will have different favourites, but my favourite city to walk around at Christmas is London. Okay so it might not be known for its quaint Christmas markets (Winter Wonderland stresses me out due to crowds…), the decor on shops, restaurants, and even homes, is some of the best in the world.
So, where can you find the most Instagrammable locations in London at Christmas time?
Located between the River Thames and the Strand, Somerset House was designed in 1776 and further extended by the Victorians. This beautiful Neoclassical building is stunning all year round but really comes alive at Christmas with the addition of a popular skating rink and Fortnum and Mason Christmas tree.
Decked to the nines and Christmas time, Carnaby Street is making a powerful message this year. Sustainability is at the heart of this festive installation with twinkly sea creatures all created from recycled or reusable materials.
Annabels prides itself on being one of the most elegant clubs in the world, it has a long and fascinating history with celebrities but also has an incredible Christmas tree facade each year…
All wrapped up with a bow, that’s how we like Christmas isn’t it?
Natural History Museum
This was my favourite place as a kid, I remember hunting for dinosaurs. This year the Natural History Museum tree and skate rink is back and beautiful as ever!
Visit the city on a weekend and it will be eerily quiet. But it means you might just get this gorgeous Christmas tree all to yourself!
Have you ever seen a restaurant covered in so many baubles? Me neither.
Beautiful every year, Regent Street at night time is even better.
This year Kew Gardens is hosting a light trail with a new route and even more beautiful installations
