Christmas in London, England, 2016: Six Fun Things to Do

I’ve been home for about four months now after living and travelling abroad for 20 months, and what a jam-packed four months it’s been. From catching up with loved ones to visiting some of my favourite cities in Europe and then easing back into working here in London again, it’s sure been a busy and eventful time in my life.

Although I do miss Australia and Southeast Asia and often catch myself reminiscing fondly over the hot beach days, there’s definitely one thing I’m excited about being back in the UK for. Christmas in London!

Christmas in Australia felt very strange and alien to me. Christmas doesn’t feel like a huge deal over there. I missed the festivities, the Christmas trees, the bright lights, and the cheer.

Feeling extra festive this year (I’m not sure my friends and family can believe it) I’ve been making the most of the Christmas celebrations offered across London. There’s definitely plenty to do.
