Week in London and a Couple of Outfits

We spent Tuesday to Saturday last week in London, soaking up the festive atmosphere and generally enjoying some time off before Christmas. We arrived mid-afternoon on the Tuesday and after checking into our hotel we headed out and had a wander through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park to the Winter Wonderland thing that is going on there at the moment. It is a cross between a Christmas market and a funfair and the atmosphere was great. We carried on walking and ended up in Victoria, then hopped on the Underground and headed over to Oxford Circus and walked down Regent Street looking at the lights.



Wednesday morning we went to Madame Tussaud’s (we had 2 for 1 entry with our rail tickets) and met some famous faces there. I was expecting Dame Judi Dench to be tiny but isn’t Bond short?!

Thursday we met up with a friend of ours that now lives in Reading. We had a wander down Oxford Street in the rain and had a drink in a pub. Then we went to have a look at the river and discovered a Christmas market on the south bank by Waterloo Bridge. We headed up to Brown’s in Covent Garden to meet another friend and ended up staying there for a meal.

Friday morning it was sunny so we took the Underground to Tower Hill and walked all the way back to Lambeth Bridge along the river, then back to Kensington where we were staying. We took afternoon tea (complete with mulled wine and mince pies) in the hotel bar and then had a swim in the pool.
