Christmas shopping when you visit London

Is there a better place in the UK for a Christmas shopping trip than London? If you are planning to visit London in December then you should take advantage of the fantastic festive shopping experiences that are available to the London tourist. Of course, if you are in London on business and already staying in a serviced apartment in London, then you should also try and take a break from work to do your shopping. LIke with everything in London the choice of shops is vast, but Serviced City Pads wanted to give a few tips as the best places to go:

Christmas shopping at Harrods is the ultimate shopping experience in London, whether you are looking for luxury toys, or exclusive gifts for him and her. All the departments are under one very special roof of this big store in Knightsbridge. Maybe the ultimate Christmas grotto in London.

For your Christmas food treats you probably won’t find a better place than Christmas shopping at Fortnum and Masons. You will be able to buy all luxury foods and find your ultimate Christmas hamper. Just take the tube to Piccadilly Circus and it’s just a short stroll.

Of, so we have covered a couple of the luxury department stores, but Christmas in London isn’t just about that, it’s also about the magic of Christmas and if you are walking around central London you will be dazzled by the Christmas lights of Oxford Street, Bond Street and Regent Street. Just take in the ambience as the crowds of London bustle by.

Staying in a London serviced apartment can be a great experince at Christmas. Corporate visitors to London will benefit from the extra space an apartment will afford. London hotels are notorious for their high costs and small sizes. This means that an apartment in London is often most appreciated by business travellers who have no choice but to stay in London. Often when you are away fom home and family, you need a place that is more home than hotel. A serviced apartment in London affords many of those creature comforts, whether you want the informality of cooking food on your own, inviting guests over for dinner to dine in your spacious dining area, or just chill out after a hard day at the London office, kick back and watch tv. Staying in an apartment also means that you have the space to “work from home” should you prefer to do that. Your stay in London wil mean that you are lucky enough to have this huge range of shops on your doorstep to find the perfect Christmas gift for your family.
