Christmassy London

I was in London briefly on my way home to Australia.  It was freezing cold with a mean little wind.  The city was all decked out in her Christmas finery and looked gorgeous.  I do love London and never tire of visiting her.  Whilst I couldn’t possibly photograph all the decorations, I just did a few that took my fancy and here they are.

Yes Santa, I'll have that one

A Park Lane tree

A Piccadilly tree

Funky tree at Harvey Nichols

Cute

Jimmy Choo does Christmas

Stella McCartney's decorations

Not quite Christmas, but hey its Hermes

Delicious choices from Dolce & Gabbana

Merry Christmas from London.

Look online for Hotwire coupons, and get to London for any holiday.

  4. Love all the trees. One of my fond memories of London at Christmas was the chestnuts for sale in the streets. Are they still there? Best wishes to you.

  6. I was there recently myself – the lights strung above Regent Street were fantastic. As were the manic elf-clerks at Hambly’s Toy Store!

  7. I love Christmas decorations! The cities look alive and festive. I’m currently in San Francisco and they really go over the top! But it’s great.

    PS I have just realised that I had forgotten to log in and I was using a different computer….
