My first Christmas away from home was difficult but being able to spend the holiday in London wasn’t so bad either. London offers much to see and do during the Christmas season making it one of the most festive cities in the world. Here are my top five activities to have a very merry London Christmas.
Ok, so technically Kew Gardens is in London but its on the outskirts so a few hours spent here makes you feel you are in the calmest corner of the world away from the chaos of the city. My friend Liz and I still had some time off from work around the holidays, (you know because European employers like to give their employees more than just a day or two off around Christmas) and I had heard wonderful things about Kew Gardens from my boss.
My first week in London I found a job and all I needed was a home for the next six months. Searching from hostel computers, my friends and I did find a home but we didn’t expect it to be filled with 20 other people.
