This can be observed at museums, historic places, art galleries, theatres and even at London Eye. Not only in the London city but there are much fewer people all over England, in places like Edinburg, York, Cardiff and Belfast which are quiet in winters to roam around the countryside. There is a lot of space for everyone including malls, markets, tubes, in fact anywhere you step in.
- Getting Around is Cheaper: There are many ways to commute and roam around London as the public transport is very frequent, and many options like bus, tube, overground, and DLR are available. Public transport is cheaper and best way of commuting in the city rather than hiring a taxi. In the winter season, most of the museums offer free entry, thus the sightseeing is much cheaper on the wallet. Taking accommodation near a tube station can save time and money.
- Winter Wonderland: In winters, London’s Hyde Park becomes a winter wonderland. Flea markets, Christmas shopping, circus acts and much more will be there to watch and enjoy. Though entry is absolutely free to the park, some acts and shows might charge an admission fee. This will be organized for a long stretch of the period,e. November 20th to Jan 3rd. If the weather is supportive an entire day can be spent there with friends and family.
- Shopping While Holidaying: Shopping is fun in London as there are many best places like Regent Street, Oxford-street, Notting Hill, and Knightsbridge and many more. Many attractive deals are available on designer clothes, branded gift items and at this time of the year as ‘year-end sale’ or ‘Christmas sale’ or ‘clearance sale’. The dazzling lights add more fun to the shopping experience.
