Here comes my third walk recommendation to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere in London! After Mayfair and Covent Garden, let me guide you through Belgravia, where you will learn a bit of history and discover several amazing places, which celebrate Christmas in style!
Last year I shared with you some pictures of Christmas in Mayfair. This year, I will rather present you the most iconic places in London, which take the colors of Christmas and transform the capital for a few weeks. Let’s have a look at Covent Garden and its neighborhood for the 2018 Christmas’ season!
Tower Bridge is an iconic bridge in London -not to be confused with London Bridge nearby – which is full of history and offers a great experience. You can enjoy the visit either on the bridge deck or on the walkways at the upper level. Let me guide you through the most distinctive bridge in the UK!
If you want to discover London in a more original way, especially if you like tropical gardens, this place is made for you: The Barbican Conservatory. Being part of the Barbican Center, this unexpected tropical oasis in the heart of London offers a great walk in a landscaped garden.
In addition to being free, Sky Garden is worth the visit: London’s “highest garden” offers the visitor a beautiful walk within tropical trees and a breathtaking view over the capital. And for those fond of photography like me, Sky Garden is an endless source of inspiration!
I can’t believe we are already in the early days of 2017… I am still remembering all the great moments we had in December, enjoying a great Christmas Spirit in London. This city is an amazing place where you can’t help but be touched by Christmas as all venues in London do create a wonderful Christmassy atmosphere… Before wishing you an happy new year, let’s see what makes London so special in December.
Whenever I go to Piccadilly or Soho I systematically make a quick detour by Carnaby Street. I feel mesmerised by this pedestrian shopping Street. The trendiness of the people there, associated with a false coolness attitude, make this place quite unique in London.
I love this part of London. This is smack in the middle of the city, but as soon as you have left the main streets you can enjoy a peaceful area, almost forgetting you are in a crowded and noisy capital… And Marylebone has much to offer: whether you are a busy worker, a curious tourist, a careful mother coming to a doctor’s appointment (Harley Street counts many doctors specialists), or a local in love with his neighbourhood, you’ll find plenty of interests in Marylebone!
This part of central London counts the most iconic attractions that are unavoidable for any visitor of London. The area of Westminster is dominated by the business of government : from Westminster Abbey and The Houses of Parliament to Trafalgar Square, I have tried to captured the mood of the area…
London’s buildings are too diverse to be characterized by any particular architectural style, but a common point to many of those contemporaries is the use of glass and large windows that gives the opportunity to create interesting effects on photographs.
