Christmas markets

Yesterday we took our daughter to the Christmas market in Leicester Square. In the past, we’ve always gone to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park but that is a bit problematic.  The rides pretty much all require that the people on them are at least 1.3m tall, which my son isn’t.  Plus it’s big, expensive and reeeeeaaaallllly far away.

They’re a funny thing, Christmas markets in London.  I have never been to one where it hasn’t been raining.  I’m sure that, in Germany, Christmas markets are magical.  Here, they’re sort of soggy.

  1. Thanks for your post! I spent Christmas in Toulouse when I was on exchange a decade ago and it bought back lovely memories of their Christmas markets and public ice skating rinks. Made me smile after a shitty incident this afternoon 🙂
