Christmas is my favourite time of the year and London celebrates it spectacularly well. Coming from New Zealand I’m used to having a summer Christmas – beach, BBQ’s & jandals. Now that I live in the Northern hemisphere I can sing along to christmas carols like ‘walking in a Winter Wonderland’ without feeling like a phoney. Here are my top 8 things to do in London this Christmas – mulled wine and christmas jumpers essential!
Edinburgh was the place to go for New Year 2015/2016. The city has it all. Castles, palaces, extinct volcanoes, royal gardens and underground vaults. But we mainly went because Edinburgh is the home of Hogmanay, Scotland’s famous New Year Festival. Full of history and with the most magical surroundings, it’s easy to see how JK Rowling was inspired to write her Harry Potter books here.
