Snapshot Of London In December



London, all dressed-up for the holidays!

'Twelve Days Of Christmas' this year on Regent Street




Thanks to my sister
I discovered a new area, St Christopher's Place




Carnaby Street is always a fun place to wander




And lovely Liberty is adorned with simple greenery




This month has been busy, as December always is

Recently I was fortunate to meet one of my first blogger friends in person,
Suzanne of Privet and Holly

She wrote up a bit about her visit here

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season so far!

Having a little morning browse on all the new postings of blogs I like to visit. I know you are an early bird too as I put in my new blog entry around 6.30 am this morning!
I especially enjoyed seeing The Twelve Days of Christmas decorations on Regent Street above! When I went to London just before Christmas a few years ago, I remember my favourite decorations were in Regent Street and in Seven Dials (near Covent Garden tube).
Have a wonderful Christmas period!

I love St. Christopher's Place, especially ar Christmas time! All the festive lights of London cheer up those dark winter days. Glad you got to take the little tour!

Oh to see London all dressed for Christmas. Your children must be loving the holidays. My boss (English dept. chair) and her mom will be spending the holidays in London. As our resident Shakespeare expert, she has tickets to see King Lear at the Globe. OMG. She will spend 10 days in London with her mom showing her the sights. T. S. makes yearly trips to England where she walks the trails, walking for miles and miles alone with the English countryside. Ah. One woman's reality is another's fantasy. How much fun it must have been meet your new friend and enjoy a bit of London together. Merry Christmas.

I always LOVE your photographs, Laura! I hope you have some tea breaks in the middle of all the holiday busyness!

Privet and Holly said...

Laura, your pictures
really brought me
back to that lovely
week we were there!
I hope you and your
sister had the BEST
time together. It's
always more fun to
explore a city with
a friend or loved one,
especially at this very
magical time of year.

Loved meeting you.
You are a very special
and talented lady!

Merry merry.....

I've been living here a decade and have yet to see London at Christmas. I really must remedy this oversight.

We truly enjoyed our so-very-brief visit to London earlier this year. How I would love to see Regent Street all decked out for Christmas! Thanks for sharing it -- and thanks for stopping by The Marmelade Gypsy, too!

I love London. I lived in Oxford when I was younger and England in by far one of my favorite countries in the world. Nice people, great places to visit... truly amazing.
