Every year at the beginning of December my family and I head up to London for the weekend to kick start the Christmas Season. We stay at a different Hotel each year to spice things up and this year we stayed at ‘The Ritz’.

As you walk in you are literally blown away by how lovely it is, Christmas decorations are everywhere and you feel as if your’e in a film.


Everyone ice-skates at Christmas, its the rules! London is full of Pop up Ice rinks at Christmas time, my favourite being the Ice rink at the Natural History Museum. I skate every Christmas, its our family tradition and it always kicks off Christmas for me.


“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”


The Christmas lights in London are amazing, Regent Street, Oxford Street ย and New Bond Street have the best I think! It really gets you into the Spirit of Christmas.


Everything you could ask for all in pretty Hyde Park. They have it all for a fun day out – Magic Ice Kingdom, Rides, Ice skating, Market stalls, Bars, Ice rink you name it they have it!



I always stop off and buy Christmas cookies xx
