10 Exciting Things To Do This Winter in London!

London is a beautiful city at the best of times, but my favourite time of the year in London is definitely the winter. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely detest the frozen fingertips and other bodily extremities, foggy mornings and dark evenings, BUT I truly believe the festivities and lights of the winter make up for the cold weather. We have reached December, meaning we have 31 days left to complete 2016! It is really beginning to get cold now, but that doesn't stop me from going out, and enjoying myself around London. In this post, i'll share with you my top 10-ish places I love to go and things I love to do during the winter season in London.

I am in South Kensington

I spent a year in South Kensington during my Master's at Imperial College London. At the time, I was inundated with studies and didn't really take the time to explore and appreciate the region. I thought it may be a good idea to take a little time exploring the area, visiting the museums and other significant features of the area.

I am at Old Montreal and the Old Port

When speaking to anyone from Montreal, they are quick to ask if I've visited Old Montreal (vieux-Montreal). I was told that it has a very European feel and is a pretty place to visit. It has been on my to-go list for a long time, and so I finally managed to check it out! It is located downtown, and very easy to access via a number of Metro stations. Once getting to the Old Montreal area, I completely understood where the parallels of a 'European' city originated from. The cobble-lined streets, small cafes outside and red-brick buildings definitely reminded me of my trips to Italy, France and Spain. It felt like a city a distance away from Montreal. I also walked across to the Old Port and admired the view of the city from ground level. It really was a glorious day (*British person talks about the weather again*) and an amazing day to explore the Old Port. There is also a...
