How To Celebrate Christmas In Style In London This Yearby Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager
Unquestionably one of the biggest advantages of living in one of our sought-after ISLAND Apartments In Croydon is visible when you simply glance through your window. We are, of course, referring to the never-ceasing wonder that is London, and as usual, the English capital is serving up no shortage of incredible events this Christmas.
Here are some of the fabulous things to look out for as a London resident as 25th December looms.
The Christmas lights... pretty much everywhere
With London being frequently likened to a large number of villages or suburbs stitched together, it’s fair to say that there’s not just one set of festive lights to make a date to go and see in 2017.
One of the most obvious is Oxford Street, where the lights were switched on this year by singer Rita Ora. However, with amazing displays also already wooing shoppers, tourists and locals at the likes of Carnaby Street and Bond Street, London reallyis dazzling in all corners this year.
Alternatively, why not get your skates on?
The glorious capital has a sure sense of fun at any time of year, but it’s something that becomes even more evident at Christmas, when various ice skating rinks are set up across the city.
Whether you want to practice genuine existing ice-skating skills, have a giggle with friends or pretend you’re Robbie Williams in his “She’s the One” video (although we’d definitely advise against any attempt at a backflip), you’ve got a lot of choice this year at such spots as the Natural History Museum, Somerset House and Canary Wharf.
Or just shop at a Christmas market
There is surely nothing as synonymous with Christmas in the typical UK town or city as a traditional Christmas market or fair, and you can be assured of finding some of the best of them in London.
Events are planned this season in such high-profile locations as Hyde Park, Leicester Square, Clapham Common and Southbank Centre, so you might not even need to consult any listings. Just take a stroll around some of the city’s most popular tourist areas, and you’ll probably see a market taking place at which to pick up quirky and well-priced gifts for your loved ones.
The above are just some of the highlights of what promises to be yet another extremely special festive season for residents of Croydon and wider London this year. Secure your ISLAND apartment now to immediately start making the most of the capital’s packed Christmas events calendar.
