♥ That’s London, baby ♥

1. Don’t miss the New Year Parade in London, between Piccadilly and Parliament Square. You will find a few tips here.

2. Celebrate the New Year the Irish way with a ceilidh at the Royal Festival Hall on January 1st.

3. There are 7 nose sculptures hidden on the walls of Soho. Join the guided walk on January 1st to find them (it’s really hard on your own!), learn about the area’s rather funky story and well, stop at a few pubs too.

4. Enjoy the Twelfth Night celebrations on Southbank on Sunday, right outside Shakespeare’s Globe. The Holly Man, King Bean and Queen Pea will be wassailing and dancing, and the George Inn nearby will be serving mince pies and mulled wine

5. How about watching the whole Tolkien trilogy at The Prince Charles Cinema on Sunday?

3. The French celebrate Epiphany with a special King’s cake, the galette des rois in which a charm is hidden. Try it from January 2nd at La Patisserie des Reves!

4. 10 fabulous beers to try in 2016.
