6 Things To Do In London Over The Festive Season

1.) Enjoy a ‘Snow Queen’ afternoon tea at the Conrad St.James:

From the 23rd of November until the 11th of February, Conrad St.James are putting on a Snow Queen Afternoon Tea, priced at £55pp with free flowing Champagne, or £39 without champagne. I was lucky enough to experience the afternoon tea during a festive day out in London with my favourite lady Julie

This is the perfect afternoon tea if you’re looking for something festive to do over the next few months! You’ll enjoy mint macaroons, blackcurrant and cardamom snowflakes along with the Snow Queen’s magic mirror, broken into icy blue sugar shards, delicious and an absolute must for the festive months!

2.) Spend the night at Cheval Three Quays residences:

I had the pleasure staying at the Cheval Three Quays residences last month, it was situated next to the Tower of London (I mean literally right next to it so the location was perfect!), a stones throw away from Fenchurch Street, Bank, London Bridge and the Sky Bar – if you’re looking to spend the night away over the festive season, I couldn’t recommend the Cheval Three Quays residences anymore! They also have apartments in various locations such as Knightsbridge, Hyde Park and Gloucester Park amongst others, take a look at the full list here!

When I arrived at my apartment for the night, I genuinely had to walk around for a good ten minutes just to establish that my eyes weren’t deceiving me and it really was that amazing! The apartment had two bedrooms, a huge sofa, two rain showers and an epic kitchen – it was so beautiful. Oh, and the most incredible view over the Thames! If you’re planning a girls sleepover or after a night away I’d so recommend checking out these incredible apartments!

3.) Visit the new Jo Malone store on Regent Street: 

The other day I popped along to the new Jo Malone store on Regent Street and oh, my, god! Ladies it’s simply stunning and an absolute must if you’re in central London! For any Jo Malone lover (come on ladies, let’s be fair we all are!), it’s heaven – you’ll find every Jo Malone scent, candle and fragrance you could ever want. You can also personalise your Jo Malone boxes which is a lovely extra if you’re buying for someone else! Definitely stop by for a personal treat, to pick up a gift or even just a peruse!

4.) Watch the Nutcracker in theatre –  (I saw it last year and it’s honestly amazing!) 

5.) Visit the Christmas markets on Southbank – still so keen to visit, nothing screams festive like a Christmas market!

6.) Head to Winter Wonderland – I’ve never been but am planning to go in between Christmas & New Year and I can’t wait

What festivities are you getting up to this Christmas? Anything I need to know about?

    I love these ideas. I still haven't visited Winter Wonderland yet but I'd love to. And I'm dying to visit the markets on Southbank, it's always so buzzing during the year anyway! Ooh the nutcracker? I've never seen it, but sounds brilliant, especially at Christmas time – and my mum's a huge Jo Malone fan so I'll have to head over and personalise a box for her for Christmas!
