Video: a drone's-eye-view of London at Christmas

Written by

It isn’t often we feel jealous of London’s pigeon population. Sure, it must be rubbish surviving on a diet of discarded sandwich crusts and fag ends, but those disgusting feathery dudes sure get a better view of the city than we do. And, as this dreamy drone video shows, at this time of year, way up in the air is the best place to admire London’s Christmas trees, ice rinks, Christmas markets and other twinkly bits. You win this round, vermin-birds.

Thanks to Black Bee Films for shooting the video, and to Winterville, Somerset House and London in general for being so damn pretty.
