Jetting off for Christmas can be costly, so why not see what’s on offer at home. Call it a “staycation” if you must. For those of you who are reading from abroad, I have left links to the best sources for cheap flight deals at the end. It’s *supposedly* the most magical time of the year. Whether you’re looking to embrace the Christmas buzz or just have a lush winter getaway, this list is for you. What a cute way to end the year if I do say so myself.
Edinburgh is known globally for being a great city all year round. But something about the mass of lights and christmas markets they put on, makes it especially magical in the winter months. From pantomimes, to drinks deals in bars, ice skating and even santa’s grotto – there is something for all ages. This is one not to miss!
Where do I start? The ice rink at Somerset house, the stunning light display at Harrods, the shows that go until late in the night at Piccadilly Circus… All of this makes putting up with grumpy Londoners worth it. The promise of hot mulled wine whilst viewing the enormous Christmas tree in trafalgar square will surely put a smile on your face? And if you happen to stumble upon some work christmas drinks at a pub, even better! No one parties like we do.
- Lapland UK
I’m not making this up, there is really a Lapland UK in Ascot. It’s an immersive experience christmas story where children can meet santa, feed and play with reindeers and create gifts with elves in the toy factory. With options of ice skating and creating gingerbread houses with Mother Christmas, there really is something for a family of all ages. This is a seasonal experience so make sure to grab tickets! – https://www.laplanduk.co.uk
