festive day in london


As it’s the most wonderful time of the year despite the cold weather, me and my cousin had a festive day in London wandering around central and then doing ice skating at Natural History Museum, which was so nice and then finishing it off with a nice meal!

We went to Covent Garden first, wandered around here and taking photos. They had decked out Covent Garden with loads of Christmas decorations, they even had a small ice rink near the Apple Market, which was cute.

We then made our way to Neils Yard and Seven Dials and they had really nice lights up everywhere. It wasn’t that dark when we were there, but we still got to experience how it looked with the lights turned on.

After spending some time around Covent Garden, we still had some to spare before our ice skating slot, so we walked down to Leicester Square and then took the tube to South Kensington for the Natural History Museum.

It was finally time for our ice skating slot at the Natural History Museum and it was such a nice experience, definitely recommend to anyone who wants to do something festive in London, but I definitely prefer the ice skating experience in Winter Wonderland!
