Are you feeling all festive yet? I definitely am. Perhaps because it’s (probably) my last Christmas in the UK for a couple of years I’m making the most of Christmas in London and all our UK traditions. If you’re not yet feeling festive then I’ve just the thing for you. A Christmas light walk in London!
When I was younger we’d always pile into the car and leave the village we grew up in for a Christmas trip to London. My Dad would drive us round and my brother, sister and I would all gaze out the windows looking out at the lights and all the Christmas trees on the buildings. I may not be that young anymore, but I still enjoy looking at the lights and trees in London.
I’ve put together a route below that takes you through some of the best lights in London. Time it right and you’ll also get some carols being played by a brass band in Sloane Square. If that doesn’t make you feel Christmassy I don’t know what will!
Pack a thermos flask of hot chocolate and a couple of mince pies to keep you going on this walk and wrap up warm.
You can also cut the walk a bit short if it starts raining (like it did on us), or you fancy escaping the crowds, by skipping Hyde Park and walking through Green Park & St James’ Park to Big Ben, finishing up on Southbank.
