I love London in the Winter and especially around Christmas. The only time of year it ever felt normal to exist in London was when it is cold and full of colourful lights.

Hi there is an error in the first of your listings. The nearest Tube Station to Kew Gardens is Kew Gardens and not Richmond as stated.

This guide is brilliant, enables us to make the most of our time in London, planning our day in advance and pick the markets that have products that interest us. Tube details are also very helpful..... Can't wait to visit.
