Christmas is coming soon, so prepare yourself for a Christmassy-looking EC London. But before our school’s Christmas decoration pops up, you can enjoy yourself by walking around in London’s city centre. The Christmas lights have been on since last week and make London look even prettier than usual. Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus All over Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus you will find London’s classic Christmas lights. Huge golden angels are hanging above the street and are brightening your Christmas mood. This is the place to go if you’re looking for some traditional Christmas decoration. Carnaby Street If you are looking out for some more colourful and diverse Christmas lights, head over to Carnaby Street. Known for its fashionable vibe, Carnaby’s Christmas lights are representing all that is cool. This year’s lights are ocean-themed. They have been designed in collaboration with an ocean conservation charity. The display was created out of 1.500 recycled bottles and repurposed fishing nets. Therefore, Carnaby’s Christmas lights are not only nice to look at, but, at the same time, have a special meaning behind them. Covent Garden Covent Garden also has his own Christmas decoration. These lights are mostly star-themed and make the area look even more beautiful than usual. This year’s Christmas Lights are as stunning as usual. No matter if by day or night, you will be amazed at how breathtaking they are.
I have been living in London for 2 years and I have visited few places. I went to Oxford for an excursion with EC Junior School and I didn’t have enough time to explore the City. Last week end my friend asked me if I wanted to go to Bath for a day trip. It was AMAZING! Bath is a roman city and I really felt at home!! We visited the Roman baths and the cathedral, we ate in a really cosy cafe and we had a walk in the city center and near the river. INCREDIBLE!!! I love travelling and I would like to see new places. It could be a good idea to spend my week ends outside London. Dublin, Edimburg, New Castle and Isle of Wight are on my “Place to visit” list…. Let me know if someone wants to join me!!
