Christmas in London...

London during Christmas is pure magic.
 My mum and I think so, at least. We rediscovered the city in 4 intense days of non stop walking, Xmas decorations shopping, market browsing, mid afternoon (or morning) tea/coffee with croissants, dining out at Italian restaurants with handsome waiters, ect

The photos are a mix of places around town that we visited: Borough Market, Somerset House, Kew Gardens, Liberty, Sloane Square, Covent Garden, Southbank, Fortnum & Mason...

And London shops in Christmas Eve
Are strung with silver bells and flowers
As hurrying clerks the City leave
To pidgeon-haunted classic towers,
And marbled clouds go scudding by
The many-steepled London sky.

John Betjeman
