Every year, the metropolis of London comes alive during Christmas. Be it numerous markets, ice rinks or illuminated houses, lanes and streets, the city is soaked with Christmas spirit.
Trafalgar square is one of the important landmarks of London. Every year it receives a giant Christmas tree from Norway as a gratitude for help offered by Britain during the Second World War. The 20 feet high tree is illuminated from first Thursday evening and continues until twelfth night of Christmas.
Other notable attractions during Christmas in London are the Christmas markets that offer something for the entire family. Borough market is one of the best food markets in the city for some of the finest winter delights. Markets are also set up in Greenwich and Hyde Park that offer arts, crafts, gourmet gifts to pretty souvenirs. Londonâ€™s largest ice rink is set up in Hyde Parkâ€™s Winter Wonderland for hours of endless fun.
Transport system in London comes to a halt during Christmas. Services by buses, trains and London underground are suspended for a day that add to commuting woes of passengers. Furthermore the weather can also takes a toll during the Christmas period, affecting the frequency of public transport systems.
Post arrival at Heathrow, comfortable transfers throughout the year are offered by safe and reliable heathrow taxis. They can be availed by making a call or by utilising simplified online portals. The service offers door step pick up and transfers in luxurious vehicles based on passenger and luggage numbers. With taxis, passengers can be assured of pick up and drops even during odd hours of the day. For services to and from London airports, flights are monitored by a dedicated help desk team and journeys are accordingly rescheduled.
Passengers thus can make best of their each visit to the English capital.
