When you think of Christmas shopping, you think of London. From the end of November, the whole city is transformed into a Christmas paradise. Think big Christmas trees, nativity scenes and lots of beautiful lights. The windows are a treat to watch. And after shopping, you can unwind with a hot chocolate at one of the many cozy pubs of London.
When you think of Christmas markets, you mainly think of Germany. But London is still best known as the top city to go Christmas shopping. Therefore, every year there is a Christmas market in London that is based on the German model. From mid-November, the Christmas market stands at the foot of the London Eye, the famous big wheel near Big Ben. In addition it is recommended to go to Hyde Park. Around Serpentine Road there is a Ferris wheel, a skating rink and other pleasant Christmas market.
If you are a fan of beautiful Christmas decorations then you definitely have to go to Harrods. You will experience five floors with the most beautiful Christmas decoration that you have ever seen. Think of the Bijenkorf in the Netherlands, but many times more extensive. This is definitely a must during the Christmas shopping.
