A festive stroll by the River Thames & a spot of shopping
London is such a unique city to visit any time of year; however, at Christmas time, it is like no other.
Folks young and old embracing the festive spirit, wrapped up warm with a sparkle in their eyes.
After heading to the bustling west end of London and experiencing The Twinkling London Streets at Christmas. We decided to fire up the sleigh and navigate our way to the River Thames.
