    Blogmas | Things to do in London this Christmas

    So welcome back to Day 8 of Blogmas. Christmas is coming round so fast, I hope you're all ready!! Although we will all be busy buying gifts and attending a Christmas soirĂ©e here and there. Christmas is a great time to head out and about and take in some events in London. 

    1. Winter Wonderland 

    This is a must if you want to feel festive this time of the year. If you don't like crowds this might not be the best place to go. But I headed in a Sunday night and was pleasantly surprised as it wasn't too busy! Winter Wonderland is full of beautiful Christmas stalls full of festive treats, gifts perfect for anyone, rides, an ice rink and a music tent. The music tent has live music on daily and is a great place for a drink, bite to eat and boogie! 

    Nearest Tube: Marble Arch 

    2. Pizza East 

    Okay, so I know this is not an overly festive choice but this time of the year brings together friends and you need a great recommendation of where to have your catch up - right? I went to Pizza East in Portobello over the weekend and I loved it. It has such a good vibe, and the food was great. We opted for brunch and I chose the on trend, Avocado on toast with poached egg! It was divine. My friends opted for their full English which was heavily influenced by the wonderful Italians but it looks amazing. If you head here be sure to try their pink lemonade - warning it is very sugary but it tasted like happiness in my mouth. The restaurant is beautifully decorated ready for Christmas so it is sure to impress. 

    Nearest Tube: Westbourne Park 

    3. Natural History Museum Ice Rink 

    So, when I went here I learnt that I cannot skate, like I thought I could. It made me so nervous but hand in hand I was basically pulled from the side I was clenching onto and managed to skate around a few laps if the rink! I didn't fall over once but I cheated and kept holiday onto the side! The ice rink is sponsored by Swarovski and it just looked magical. Fairy lights get me every time and their giant tree in the centre of the rink was beautiful. It costs £15.50 a ticket for a 50 minute skate and that includes the skate hire. Perhaps slightly deer but the standard really with Somerset House charging around the same.  Book now at the Natural History Museum so you can feel this magic of Christmas! 

    Nearest tube: South Kensington 

    Do you have any recommendations of where to visit to get me feeling festive? 
    Lots of love,
