London and Where Else in late December?

Jump to last reply

We will headed to London on 26 Dec for a week to use up some Virgin miles. My husband and I have both been to London several times and while we plan to spend 2 nights there, we are looking to spend a few nights elsewhere that is easy to reach and practical for a short trip.

What is London like the week between Christmas and New Years in terms of seasonal things to do in the city center? Is the countryside a good option at this time of year?

I know that Paris is an easy option but it is not a favorite destination for us. We have also been to Amsterdam several times and are just back from Belgium and the Netherlands. We did like Brussels and only spent one day so that may be an option but looking for any other recommendations.

We prefer to travel by train as we would like to keep costs down. We will likely spend two nights in London at the end of our trip so that we are in easy reach of the airport for the return flight.

If we do decide to fly, our options are many and we will likely head to Germany and spend a few nights in Berlin but really hoping to keep costs and moving around to a minimum.

Thanks for any recommendations.
