Budget London Winter Breaks 2019 – 4 days from GBP£175
With the Euro strong against the Pound, make the most of your money, and stock up with Christmas gifts in London.
The Christmas lights are turned on in mid November, which light up the main streets, the Winter Wonderland comes to Hyde Park – a spectacular Christmas market in the heart of London, with over 50 wooden chalets selling gifts and goodies, and of course plenty of food and drink. There are funfair rides, side shows and one of several ice rinks that are open around the Capital. As we get nearer Christmas, the shops are open that bit later and there is a real buzz in the key shopping areas, such as Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street. And the best thing is, that we have some great hotel rates available to make your dollars, Euros or local currency go that bit further.
