6 Ways To Get Festive In London

December is here! Can you believe we are in the final month of 2016? So scary! It felt just it was only just New Years Eve with us all cheering and toasting welcoming 2016. However, I have a great feeling that 2017 is going to bring amazing things. However, we can’t get carried away and start thinking about the new year yet, let’s enjoy Christmas first. Need some help to get into the festive mood? I have you covered.

Nothing beats a post-dinner walk down the Southbank, admiring the gorgeous London skyline and the fantastic festive lights on the trees. How romantic. However, I can assure you, you will freeze.
