Christmas in London (& Paris)

Jump to last reply

Hi there.. I'm an old Fodor's forum member.. and checking in for some travel assistance! My BFF and I are heading to London arriving next Sun. the 5th.. and staying until Friday and then taking Eurostar to Paris until Monday the 14th.. then flying back to US,, I've been to London several times but my friend has only been there once before and it may be her last as she is fighting pancreatic cancer.. we want this to be a memorable trip!! I've never to London during December and I've been reading online about London at Christmas so pretty familiar what the big events are.. it's just narrowing down the best.. I am a fan of London walks as well and love London Theatre..

So.. for those of you who are very familiar with London during the holidays.. what are your favorite things to do.. which Christmas markets, fairs, ice skating events etc. are your go to.. Also, what would you recommend for theatre right now? .. Looks like the Big shows are the same as in the states.. but also saw A Christmas Carol with Jim Broadbent.. the Snowman at the Peacock Theatre.. Elf.. as recommendations.. (now some are obviously more kid friendly but may be fun for adults).. Also.. affordable restaurants that are your favorites.. I noticed on Time Out that a vegetarian restaurant in Covent Gardens is #1 Jar Table or something.. forget the name already..
I love Cafe in the Crypt for meals before theatre.. and I liked Waxy O'Connors for a fun place to have a drink that last time my hubby and I were there last January.. I've seen Billy Elliott twice in London and loved it! Would go again..

So any personal recommendations for one week from now are welcome.. please help! I want to make this a special trip for my friend.. Thanks!!!!!
