There are also lots of festive drinks, food and activities to try to add to this very special experience in one of London’s prettiest areas.

London Eye
The London Eye is a breathtaking experience at any time during the year but particularly over Christmas. Seeing the twinkling lights from the city and far beyond from above once the sun goes down is an incredible sight to behold during the festive period. You can also find London Eye discounts online which will help you to make savings on what can otherwise be an expensive experience. Be sure to take a stroll along South Bank afterwards as this is another highly festive area with all kinds of events and festivities during the winter months.

Winter Wonderland
Winter Wonderland in the iconic Hyde Park is one of the biggest attractions in all of London and this is for good reason. The beautiful park is transformed into a magical winter wonderland with festive sights and things to do in every direction. This includes ice skating, fairground rides, Christmas markets, family shows and much, much more. It is a great place for families because there is something for everyone and a magical atmosphere throughout the park.
