πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ FUN CHRISTMASSY LONDON THINGS THAT KATE'S AMERICAN PARENTS WOULD ENJOY

πŸŽπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸΎ So much pressure @k8mcgarry! I'm not here this Dec but totally have a list of things I would do if I was here...
  1. β€’
    1) First off!
  2. β€’
    But possibly WHITE CHRISTMAS
    I'm not even here for it πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆ
  3. β€’
    2) Be sure to hit all our fancy British shopping institutions.
    They all do great window displays and lights. They will all have a full blown Christmas section and also Santa's Grotto.
  4. β€’
    Harrods
  5. β€’
    Selfridges
  6. β€’
    Liberty
  7. β€’
    3) Christmas markets
    Will all be busy but here are a few I think are worth the visit
  8. β€’
    Southbank Centre Winter Market
  9. β€’
    Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park
    Warning this is always packed (can even be horrid) but the largest of them all. Can be fun if you don't mind the craziness. Also has ice skating.
  10. β€’
    My fav:Columbia Road Christmas Wednesday
    Famous Sunday flower market. Open on Wednesday for Xmas. Small market but great atmosphere and niche arty shops. http://www.columbiaroad.info/news/article/christmas_wednesday_2016 might see The Pearly King & Queen if you're lucky.
  11. β€’
    Christmas at Kew
    A bit further out but in the lovely Kew Gardens. Worth a visit. http://www.kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/whats-on/christmas-at-kew-2016
  12. β€’
    Christmas at Borough Market
  13. β€’
    4) Are you parents in to ice skating?
    If so we have ice skating rinks which are kind of boring I guess...until you see where they are 😬
  14. β€’
    Somerset House
  15. β€’
    Hampton court
    A bit of history while you skate
  16. β€’
    Tower of London
    Some more history you say...
  17. β€’
    Honestly there is so much to do but a lot of pop up events haven't announced yet so hard to suggest those RN.
  18. β€’
    Not sure how long they are here for but Boxing Day sales start way before Boxing Day now so they might get some good shopping in KATE!!
    Ohh please get them to go to the pub I mention in this list - think they will love it (well I don't know them so really they could also hate it πŸ™ˆ). I'M EMMA AMA Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―
  19. β€’
    Anyway AMA @k8mcgarry's parent...
    I'm really better at food and restaurants lol
