During a quick stopover in London in December 2016, I took this opportunity to visit Christmas markets around the city centre. Here are photos of the festive Covent Garden, Christmas lights on Oxford and Regent Street, and Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
Photos of my visit to Brighton, a seaside city in the south of the UK, reachable in a little over an hour by train from London.
An observation from London: The Gherkin looks like The Gherkin from anywhere, but The Shard is difficult to recognize from the London Bridge train station.
London never disappoints - rain, snow, thunderstorm, sunshine - all on one day.
