Have a little festive family fun in London this Christmas

Are you struggling to find the perfect Christmas presents for friends and family? Don’t panic, as the English capital could provide the solution! We think buying train tickets to London for a weekend away would be a great gift and get everyone feeling a little more festive. Of course, it’ll also be a great chance to do a little shopping and perhaps find something unique to head home with. Here are a few spots we think are worth checking out:

Chocolate Festival at Southbank

Across the festive period the Southbank is transformed as traders offer a wide range of items from their stalls. However, chocoholics won’t want to miss the Chocolate Festival, which takes place from December 13th to 15th at Southbank Centre Square. As you’d expect you’ll be able to try and take away a wide range of chocolate products but you’ll also be able to catch demonstrations from expert chocolatiers. It’s the tenth year this free event is taking place, so why not book trains to London now and join the celebrations?

Belgravia Christmas Sunday  

On the first day of December Motcomb Street, Elizabeth Street and Pimlico Road will be taken over by stalls selling a range of arts and crafts. There’ll also be a brass band and carol singers providing entertainment and Father Christmas and his reindeer will also be stopping off in the area, so it’s sure to be a fun day out for all the family.

London Christmas Fair

If you’re a fan of BBC TV’s The Great British Bake Off the London Christmas Fair in aid of the British Red Cross could be an event for you as the show’s Mary Berry will opening it and speaking at the preview night on November 27th. If you’d like to attend this tickets are priced at £20 and include canapés and a glass of wine on arrival. Alternatively, you can head along the next day with tickets priced at £5 on the door and £4 in advance. You’ll find more than 70 stalls to browse within the Kensington Town Hall venue, so it could be a great option for those seeking something unique.

Ice Skating at the National History Museum 
Always a great day out, the Natural History Museum has a little extra appeal at this time of year as visitors can get their skates on and take to an ice rink. If you don’t fancy skating check out the market stalls and admire the impressive Christmas tree!
