Things to do in London this Christmas!
This year we know things have been a little different, but we are not letting this dampen our Christmas spirit! With many people not being able to see or spend time with their loved ones, plenty of changes in plans and lots of time stuck inside we understand more than ever the importance of Christmas. Although some experiences have been altered or cancelled this year there are still plenty of options available in London, here are just a few we would recommend checking out during your stay with us;
