Christmas In London

We left for London from the station on Christmas Eve and after changing at Leeds found ourselves in the City just over two hours later. The trip was made all the better by some lovely Christmas sandwiches and a bottle of Bucks Fizz and Wine we had taken to start celebrating with. We quickly checked in to the hotel in Covent Garden, changed for dinner and then set off for the Albert Hall.
Here we had a Christmas Eve dinner in the newer restaurant "Coda" which I don't think was here last time we came for the Proms, then we ate in the "Elgar". The food was quite delicious and before we knew it, it was time to go into the Hall for the Christmas Carol evening. This was great fun and an absolutely beautiful way to start off the Christmas celebrations.

The following day was Christmas Day of course so we set off for Trafalgar square and joined in with a London Walks group based around the life and times of Samuel Pepys. The guide was both entertaining and informative and we fully enjoyed this interesting couple of hours (to be cont)
