Festive Afternoon Tea
A tasty and traditional way to celebrate the holidays in London is by enjoying a holiday-themed afternoon tea at one of the many tea shops. Biscuiteers Christmas Afternoon Tea in London is a fun and great place for a delicious cup of tea plus a treat. Their delightful Biscuit Boutique and Icing Cafe in Notting Hill is just a short stroll away if you are staying at our Leicester apartment and not far from our vacation rentals in nearby Kensington.
Celebrate Like A Local
London locals have their own unique ways of celebrating the holidays. So, if you want to ring in the holidays English-style, you should stop by a nearby store and pick up some Christmas Poppers, Mincemeat Pies, Christmas Pudding, Roast Turkey, and a Yule Cake. Another favorite local activity is shopping at Fortnum & Mason. Even if you’ve finished your shopping list, the store has a terrific holiday window display that is unique every year.
Pick Up Some Last Minute British Gifts
London is a dream for shoppers any season of the year, but it’s especially fun during the holidays. While everyone with you in London is exploring the city, you can slip away and grab some last-minute gifts. Harrods is a shopping destination, but as a fair warning, it can be hectic during the holidays. Regent Street is a festive area with an angelic Christmas lights display hanging over the street. It’s also the home of Hamleys, the world’s oldest and most iconic toy store.
