School’s out, Christmas is near and New Year is just around the corner. Now is the best time for the whole family to take some time off to explore and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year and welcome the start of a new one together. Here’s a list of destinations that will make for a great time over the holidays.
Walk in a Winter Wonderland in London, England
Experience a magical Christmas in the city of London where winter markets and seasonal festive decorations take over across the city. The Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is a season favourite for Londoners and visitors alike, where you can enjoy a bout of ice skating with your loved ones, enjoy views of London in winter from a ferris wheel, and even catch some seasonal theatrical performances. Warm up with a cup of mulled wine or hot chocolate and snack on the multitude of street food on offer. For New Year’s Eve this year, Big Ben might not be sounding out its 12 iconic bongs to mark the time, but you can still celebrate the stroke of midnight with colourful fireworks over the river Thames. A central hotel close to Hyde Park would be ideal over the holiday season, so you’re always close to the festivities.
