Top London Christmas Markets to Visit This Year

Top London Christmas Markets to Visit This Year

There are two possible responses to being told how many shopping days are left until Christmas.  Response number one involves flat panic and a hastily written Christmas list.  Response number two is a happy little smile to yourself because you know that it’s getting a little closer to Christmas market time.  Here, in the UK, we’re very lucky as there’s a long tradition of these wonderful seasonal events and if you plan ahead, you can get to quite a few. Since most of the Christmas markets take place at around the same time, the best way to ensure you get a chance to visit as many as possible is to find an area where there are several markets and book yourself into a hotel for a few days.  Naturally, there are a lot of Christmas markets in the London area, so with Heathrow Hotel and parking within range of all of them, it’s an ideal location for the well-organised Christmas shopper. One of the most popular Christmas markets takes place at the Southbank Centre in London, from mid November to Christmas Eve, including traditional German style stalls and decorations.  After all, who does Christmas better?  In a range of chalets, you will find beautifully crafted Christmas items while choir performances get you into the festive spirit.  Over in Hyde Park, a whole section of the park is set aside for the Winter Wonderland Christmas Market from late November until early December, so you can shop early for next year as well!  With seasonal lights, Christmas craft stalls, amusement rides and an ice-rink, it doesn’t have to be all about the Christmas shopping; you can make time for other kinds of fun, too. If you arrange for your tour of the Christmas markets to include the last day of November and the first day of December, you can stop off at the Chelsea Physic Garden Christmas Fair, where you can wander around their heated marquees, buying unique jewellery, clothing, seasonal foods and other gifts, including garden-related items.  You might even want to taste the house speciality of game stew, followed by a few mince pies.  One place that really knows how to get shoppers into the right frame of mind is Covent Garden.  Although their market, which opens in late November, is focused on the piazza, the smaller roads radiating from the piazza also share in the festivities.  There’s a mulled wine hut that also serves hot apple juice for the drivers, as well as a wealth of stalls where you can tick off plenty of your Christmas gift needs before you pay a visit to the chocolate bar to...

Newcastle’s Critically-Acclaimed Restaurants

Newcastle’s Critically-Acclaimed Restaurants

Whether I’m planning a weekend away or a long holiday, I always intend to eat out in style – at least once or twice! Although many great destinations in the UK offer great food, recently, I had found out that  in Newcastle there are some truly fantastic restaurants – so much so that I really did feel the craving. Many of these have received a fair amount of critical acclaim, and it’s these I’ll be focusing on for the purposes of this post. Cafe 21 Where: Trinity Gardens, Quayside Once upon a time, this lovely restaurant was located at 21 Queen Street, from where it takes its name. After spending 19 years there, it moved to its new home on the Quayside with its sleek, modern decor that creates a fantastically swish, upmarket atmosphere. What I most like about this restaurant is that while it’s a very sophisticated setting, it offers very honest, fuss-free food, aiming to bring out the best in the ingredients. Here, you’ll eat classic bistro fare – though lots of dishes do have a unique contemporary twist. To give you a taste of what you can expect, starters include a cheddar cheese and spinach souffle, and mains like fish stews, pan-roasted cod and roasted duck breast are available. My favorite course, dessert, gives you a choice of creme brulee, hot raspberry souffle, Tanzanian chocolate mousse and more. It’s also worth bearing in mind that this restaurant snapped up a Gold Award at the Taste of North East England Awards 2008. Blackfriars Restaurant and Banquet Hall Where: Friars Street It’s not every day you can say that you’ve eaten in the oldest dining room in England, but that’s exactly what you can do if you eat at Blackfriars Restaurant. Located in a friary that dates all the way back to 1239, this eatery makes the very best use of its setting by offering medieval banquets as well as an a la carte menu filled with British classics. What’s more, it’s won a host of awards for its culinary prowess, including a Taste of England award in both 2013 and 2012. The dishes here are made with locally sourced food (often from the nearby farms) and include treats like beetroot risotto, Durham pork fillet and Cumbrian stuffed chicken breast. Sweet-toothed individuals like myself can look forward to some really classic desserts – as well as traditional dishes with a twist – like dark chocolate fondant, sticky toffee pudding and cherry bakewell cheesecake. Just as a quick tip, this restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day, with the exception of Sundays when there’s no evening service....

Vacation in Europe? Here is Where to Stay

Vacation in Europe? Here is Where to Stay

Europe is, understandably, high on most travelers ‘must-see’ lists. Whether you’re coming from a different continent or from a neighboring country, the variety of European culture, destinations, history and landscape is all there to explore. Hugely diverse, hugely interesting and, frankly, just huge, it’s difficult to discuss in general terms. Accommodation options are, equally, huge. Right across the continent there are different options available depending on your budget, your location, and your personal preference. Bear in mind that costs and standards will vary country to country but, in general, Eastern Europe is cheaper than Western, and the Scandinavian countries have a reputation for being on the expensive side. Best Hostels in Europe At the lower end of the accommodation scale, most parts of Europe are well served by a network of hostels and dormitories. There are independently run hostels, backpacker hostels and those run by bodies such as the Youth Hostel Association. All are reasonably cheap and cheerful, offering beds in shared rooms, shared bathrooms and, normally, a kitchen and lounge where you can prepare and eat meals, relax and meet other travellers. Hostels are great if you’re travelling alone and want to meet people, and there are some real gems available. They’re invaluable if you’re on a budget. A few (mostly city centre ones) will also offer slightly more expensive private rooms, which are sometimes en-suite, and whole dormitories can be booked at once – good for groups travelling together. Private Apartment In Europe If you’re a group or family looking for somewhere for a week or so, it’s well worth looking into hiring a holiday cottage or private apartment. From Budapest’s city center to Scotland’s remotest countryside, you should be able to rent accommodation which is self-contained and equipped with everything you need. Many will also allow dogs – great if you’re traveling with the family friend! This can be a very cost-effective option, depending how many are in your party.  Also, if you want to find accommodation in London, apartment is a great option. If self-catering isn’t your style and you’re after a bit of luxury, then look into the top-end hotels. These will offer restaurants, bars and well-appointed en-suite rooms. Many also have fitness and leisure facilities – ranging from a small gym through to a full-blown spa, swimming-pool, tennis courts and much much more! Luxury Hotels Europe Top-class, luxury hotels will certainly pamper you (you won’t have to lift a finger if you don’t want to!) and your stay will be a memorable one – but expect to pay handsomely for the luxury. Of course there are plenty of other, cheaper, less luxurious hotels...
