#TFReflections LONDON (Christmas time)

22nd December 2017


How wonderful to visit London in the build up to Christmas. The lights are dazzling (Regent Street), there is a plethora of book shops to visit and more than enough things to do and see. First stop the London Review Bookshop at 14 Bury Place.

It is quite easy to walk across the city from Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury (check out a couple of novels set around Fitzrovia) and head on down past the amazing frontage of the Cross Keys pub on Endell Street into Covent Garden.

And of course once in Covent Garden the Christmas decorations at the Covered Market are beautiful and utterly festive.

And just another photo of the interior at Covent Garden (couldn’t resist snapping away)

Heading on, we had to stop off at Stanfords – the World’s Biggest and Best Travel and Map Bookshop – with whom we have recently partnered up!

Down to Piccadilly Circus… my art history teacher always said to look up to the sky and along the tops of buildings when you visit a new city. I wonder how many people have spotted this wonderful art deco trio flying above the Horses of Helios at the corner of Coventry Street and Haymarket.

A stop at Selfridges, they too have beautiful Christmas decorations

Finally ending up further West at the doors of Peggy Porschen Cakes

And yes, I covered all these locations in one day. London is a surprisingly easy city to cover on foot!! The centre is not that big…

What books should you take. We have pulled together 10 Great Books Set in London – would love to hear in the Comments which book has transported you to this great city!
